Perkins Restaurant and Bakery in Wheeling was recognized Tuesday for its patriotism.

Each year, the Sons of the American Revolution recognizes a local organization that proudly displays the American flag properly.

SAR Chapter President Jay Fry says Perkins, which is owned by Carolla Ventures, sets an example for the community.

"You can't drive east or west on Interstate 70 without seeing it, and it's displayed in accordance to the United States Flag Code, meaning that it's lighted at night, it's in good repair, and it is appropriately at full and half-staff on the occasions that require that," Fry said.

The flag at Perkins currently is raised at half-staff because of the tragedy in Orlando, Fla.
