A new Flag has been raised at the Veteran's Memorial
Slow down a bit as you pass the North Amity Cemetery on Route 1 and take a look at the new flag flying over the Veteran's Memorial. This flag has been raised and flown over the capitol of the United States. The 5x8 foot flag is a very generous gift from Rep. Bruce Poliquin's office.
Amity resident Larry Hamilton noticed the old flag, which had become quite tattered from catching on the overhanging branches of a nearby oak tree, had been removed. Someone had already helped themselves to the light at the base of the pole shortly after the flag and pole was put up and Veteran's Day was fast approaching.
