American flag program by Summit Hill Lions Club
Summit Hill Lions Club is continuing its American flag program this week.
The program was resurrected starting with the Memorial Day weekend festivities as a means of honoring and/or memorializing veterans from the community.
For one-week periods, the club will fly the American flag at the Ludlow Park site to remember current and former town residents who gave service to our country.
As the program continues this week, the late Clair R. Rehrig will be memorialized. He served in the U.S. Army for 21-1/2 years before retiring in 1973 with the rank of master sergeant. he was a former businessman in Summit Hill and also served as a Panther Vallley School District director.
Town residents are invited to contact Lions Club members to have their family member or friend scheduled to be honored or memorialized. Joseph O'Gurek Jr., 645-5171, is in charge of the scheduling. Those making a request to have a veteran scheduled should provide that person's service record.
The only stipulations to be scheduled are that the person being recognized is a current or former town resident and must have served in the Armed Services.
