Recreation personnel were busy effecting finishing touches in getting the Garden City Swimming Pool ready for the opening of its 43rd season which began June 10. I am confident that residents will be delighted with the results.
Should there be any questions with regard to filing for an application or procedures, please call the Garden City Pool at 483-1714, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
By an Act of Congress, dated Aug. 3, 1949, June 14 of each year was designated "National Flag Day" and the week in which June 14 occurs as "National Flag Week." The "Pause for the Pledge of Allegiance" was made an official Flag Day ceremony by an Act of Congress in 1985.
The National Flag Day Foundation, Inc. is asking all citizens of the United States to display the flag during that week and that all Americans join in the 21st annual, "Pause for The Pledge" ceremony on June 14 at 7 p.m. by reciting in unison the Pledge of Allegiance to our Flag and Nation.
