To The Editor:
Thank you to Amvets Post 19 for giving us the opportunity to host their flag retirement ceremony, which nicely coincided with the Elks Flag Day activities. The ceremony, which left several in awe, was very patriotic and respectful.
Thank you to all the participants who made this ceremony a lasting and fitting memory, which included members of the Benevolent and Protectorate Order of Elks Lodge 772, Amvets Post 19, scouts from Ogdensburg and Heuvelton with their troop leaders, American Legion, and Elks members Val Sovie for singing the National Anthem and Jerry Mack for the sound system. Thank you all.
