Rep. Ciresi Distributing Memorial Day Flags
ROYERSFORD PA – Veterans and their families in the 146th Legislative District can obtain flags to honor the memories of those who gave all for the nation, in an effort begun Wednesday (May 20, 2020) by district state Rep. Joe Ciresi from his office at 301 N. Lewis Rd.
More than 200 flags are available for free from Ciresi to help others “pay their respects over the Memorial Day weekend while practicing social distancing and taking proper precautions,” Ciresi said. He worked with Bill Pinkerton, president of Veterans in Recovery, in making the flag distribution possible.
An additional 300 flags will be distributed to the local Veterans of Foreign Wars unit for placement at the Fernwood and Limerick Garden of Memories cemeteries, as well as 500 flags for Edgewood Cemetery in Pottstown, he said.
Those interested in obtaining a flag can visit the office during regular business hours. Because the quantity is limited, call Ciresi’s office at 484-200-8265 to ensure availability. Constituents picking up flags are being asked to donate a non-perishable food item for a family in need.
