Hacienda installed its annual salute to Flag Day and the Fourth of July on Monday, June 10. Continuing a six-year tradition, the installation was conducted by long-standing Pleasanton business, T. Marshall Electric, who has performed this work for Hacienda each year.

Each year, Hacienda mounts three-foot by five-foot flags from the lampposts along Hacienda Drive from I-580 to W. Las Positas, and on Stoneridge Drive from Hopyard Road to Santa Rita Road. A total of 50 flags, one for each state, were installed just prior to Flag Day, June 14th, and will be proudly displayed through mid-July. Inspired by then-freshman and Pleasanton resident Amanda McKenzie in 2013, the idea for the flag display throughout Hacienda was a project developed as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award. Six years later, Amanda McKenzie's Gold Award project has become a Hacienda tradition.
