Exchange prides itself on its knowledge of American traditions, none less important than honoring the sacred American symbol of Old Glory. The semi-annual breakfast is a time when individuals, organizations and businesses are presented prestigious awards for their outstanding acts of patriotism and contributions to the community as well as their proper and prominent displaying of the American flag. The Breakfast is $20 per guest. exchangeclub.org.
