Nesquehoning Memorial VFW Post 8008 and the Ladies Auxiliary will celebrate Loyalty Day on Wednesday, May 1, beginning at 6 p.m.
The program will be held in the social hall of the local organization.
On July 18, 1958 the Veterans of Foreign Wars won a long, hard battle to have May 1 approved by Congress as Loyalty Day. It is designated as a day filled with activities designed to involve the community in a display of loyalty to flag and country.
Residents are requested to fly their flags on May 1.
