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 James Steward will be memorialized. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, having been stationed in Pusan, Korea and Yokosuka, Japan. He attained the rank of yeoman first class.

Last week, memorialized was the late Russell Anstead Sr. will be memorialized. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II, having been stationed in the South Pacific Theater of Operations where he attained the rank of staff sergeant. His name was misspelled in last week's memorial listing.

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.
