Senator Farley Salutes Flag Day

State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I – Schenectady) notes that Sunday, June 14th, is Flag Day.

“This day is meant to reflect on the true meaning and history of the American flag. Our forefathers stood up for freedom and liberty, creating the United States of America,” he said. “The flag represents this struggle for independence. Our American flag has long exemplified the spirit of those who lost their lives in battle, as well as those who fought valiantly and survived.”

Senator Farley has paper American Flags available for constituents to obtain for the holiday. For information, call his office at 455-2181. He recently supplied numerous elementary schools with paper flags, and brochures on the history and care of the flag, for their school Flag Day events.
