Flag Pole Dedication
YLPA member Deborah Lawson Scott wrote a poem, In This Place, especially for our Memorial Day flagpole dedication. The Wurtsboro chapter of the American Legion provided an Honor Guard, led by our own Larry Barnes.
Alice Salmans, who initiated the effort to install the new flagpole, lead the assembled YLPA members in the Pledge of Allegiance, as the Honor Guard raised the flag for the first time.
Following the raising of the new flag, Taps was played by a Legionnaire. Out-going YLPA President Rob Rogers joined in-coming President Addie Bruni, to lay a wreath honoring our nation's fallen warriors. Alice read Deborah's poem. The Honor Guard fired their rifles in salute to fallen loved ones in wars past and present.
The ceremony was solemn, poignant and heart-warming. Our thanks to Jim Scott for donating the new flag now flying over our Clubhouse. The poem and photos follow below.
