Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

The town of North Castle New York which includes Armonk is very patriotic.  Flags line main street as was shown in my first post.  Today was primary election day and the flag above flies over town hall below.

Just down the street is the American Legion Hall.  When our girls were in school the town supervisor was a member of the Legion and promoted patriotic celebrations.

That American Flag flies in front of the American Legion post with the POW and MIA flag below it.  Our family has special memories of Memorial Day services in front.  The Byram Hills High School Band played in formation under the tree.  Both of our daughters played here during their high school years.

This is my third and final post for the challenge sponsored by Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho and Endre Barath, Jr.

Kat - the only thing I have from the years when my daughters played there were videos which would have taken lots of work to re master.  They are on VHS.

Loved this post, Grant... and what I've realized through this challenge this month is that it's impossible to have a bad picture of Old Glory.

I miss hearing a band play.  I remember the high school band would practice at the football field that was near my elementary school and I would get to listen to them play on my walk to school.  I always enjoyed it.

Good morning Grant. The June challenge had me looking at flags differently for the entire month. May have me doing the same into the future. It sure jogged the memory bank! Enjoy your view of the flags!

Hi Grant- love your entry, especially the flags in front of the American Legion post.  All of the posts on flags reminded me of when I was an affiliate with the Women's Council of Realtors. The flag was always front and center and we said the Pledge of Allegiance before our event. g

Nina - thanks.  I agree with that.

Brian - it is nice too hear.  My older daughter played the flute and younger one, the clarinet.

Wayne - that was a good thing that it did.

Joan - I need that shot because the overhead wires got in the way.

Buzz - oh yes, we love it here.

Kathy - yes.  The pledge is recited at all town board meetings.

George - the towns like mine, yours, and all around make America.

Mark - It is part of the American heritage that we share.

Hi Grant,

I love all the background information you provide with your images.  I was reminded by the POW/MIA flag that my uncle was a prisoner of war in Japan.  I don't often think of that so I appreciate the reminder to remember his courage and heroism as a prisoner or war. Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
