Yorktown Town Hall
Flagpoles Re-activated
On Thursday, December 7th, 2017 our Yorktown Post #1009 joined with Veterans
of Foreign Wars Post #8328 to re-activate the flagpoles at Yorktown Town Hall.  
The original flagpole and veterans monuments in front of Town Hall were
removed to install handicapped parking spaces for the building.  In its place three
smaller flagpoles were installed.  The old flagpole was moved to the center of
Patriot's Park adjacent to Town Hall.  The Town Board had the three veterans
monuments installed there also with lighting.  In addition, there were 6 flagpoles
installed to display the flags of the branches of the US military services.
Past Post Commander's of Yorktown's American Legion and
Veterans of Foreign Wars Posts Al Laughlin(left) and Mike O'Connor
(right) raised the US flag.
