flags on 48 number 3

Do you want to know how to invite someone to join your group in English?

Today you’ll hear a fun story and you’ll get English phrases to invite someone to join you.

Last weekend Lindsay went hiking and had an interesting experience.

A group of people invited her to join them in their Flags on 48 project.

In this project, groups of 5-10 people summit the 48 mountains that are over 4,000 feet tall in New England the weekend after September 11th.

They carry the parts of the flag to the top of the mountain and then assemble it.

They fly the flag for two hours in memory of the people who died on 9/11.
