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, for the flag raising ceremony. Alice Salmans, who initiated the effort to install the new flagpole as part of a Clubhouse grounds renovation project, 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, out-going YLPA President joined in-coming President Addie Bruni, to lay a wreath, honoring our nation's fallen warriors. Alice read Deborah's poem. Taps was played by a Legionnaire, and the honor guard fired their rifles in honor of 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. Click this link to read Deborah's poem, and to view photos of this very special ceremony.
