Flags For Heroes – Incredible sight!
With more than 120 flags blowing in the wind, a short ceremony to honor our heroes was held Monday, Veterans Day holiday, on the lawn of Newark City Administration Building. Many thanks to those who worked on the committee with Paul Keely, those who sponsored flags, and those who supported our efforts in other ways. There are many pictures in the Newark Post e-edition. There will be even more flags next year.
