Members of Newtown Woman’s Club, GFWC, are hoping residents will purchase American flags to benefit the veterans at Rocky Hill Veterans Home & Hospital and West Haven Veterans Hospital.
The flags, each with a ribbon attached naming the honoree, the branch of the military, and the date served or currently serving, can be purchased to honor family members and friends who have served or are serving in the military. The flags will be displayed at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Main Street for Memorial Day.
Flags cost $5 each and all funds raised will support the veterans.
To purchase a flag or for more information call Marion Thompson at 203-426-0253, Marilyn Alexander at 203-426-6340, or Millie Anderson at 203-426-6003, or mail check to PO Box 101, Newtown CT 06470.
