Partners In Progress celebrates Flag Day!
On Wednesday, June 14th, Partners In Progress held a Flag Day celebration. The event was organized by PIP’s Joseph Rogers and was attended by approximately 100 people, including MU President Fran Hendricks, Senator Joe Scarnati’s Field Representative Deb Rudy, and Dawn Hull from the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce.
The flag ceremony was conducted by the Austin Cox American Legion Post 478 and Mansfield VFW Post 6757 with assistance from Mansfield Boy Scout Troop 106.
The event also featured two “living history” military vehicles from the Military Vehicle Preservation Association of the Finger Lakes – a 1951 ‘M135’ and a 1952 ‘M38.’
Staff from Partners In Progress served 200 hot dogs and refreshments to everyone in attendance and gave away free hand-held American Flags.
