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.

Basketball Clinic 6 July
The new basketball court is almost done! The court was paved and striped last week, and additional topsoil is being tampered and grass seed spread. Construction fencing was replaced by temporary fencing on two sides of the court.
The asphalt is settling and will be ready for players in a few weeks. No vehicles can be parked there this season!
The opening date will be July 4. A signup form for the July 6 Basketball Clinic can be accessed here, and we encourage interested families to fill out the registration form by June 21 to help with our headcount and number of volunteer coaches.
Many members have stopped by to express their enthusiasm while the Basketball Court committee has been working, and we appreciate your understanding and patience a bit longer.
