Saratoga Flag takes great pride in participating in numerous Veterans Day Parades. Please take a minute to view excerpts from the 2015 NYC Veterans Day Parade, where we marched with the Wounded Warrior Project and thousands of Veterans up Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
We Honor Those Who Serve and have served, every day!
Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.[
It is a well known fact that Small Businesses Support their Local Community, far more than any major corporation or “Big-Box” Stores. *For every dollar spent at a small business, 68 percent funnels back into the local community. (*Source)
Saratoga Flag is a small family business, which takes great pride in supporting non-profit organizations in Saratoga County and the surrounding region every year.
This blog post is highlighting one such group: “The Lake Theatre,” in Residence at the Holiday Inn- Lake George Resort, for the past 49 years.
The Lake Theatre has produced a delightfully entertaining production of “Almost, Maine,” a romantic comedy written by John Cariani. The Holiday Inn dinner-theatre venue provides a pleasantly intimate setting for live theatre, where you are up close and personal with very talented New York City actors on stage. Audience members can choose to arrive early for the full dinner (or lunch), or choose to attend the live matinee or evening performance without a meal. Read more about the production in The Post Star and The Saratogian Newspapers.
“Almost, Maine” runs from July 21- September 3rd, 2016. “Southern Comforts” (another romantic comedy) runs September 15 – October 22, 2016. See Link https://laketheatreproductions.com/shows/ for tickets or call the **Box Office: (518) 668-5762, extension 411.
