L/CPL Robert J. Slattery, Marine Corps League Det #206, NEWSLETTER, Jul 2017 - 10
Flag Day Festival

While the Somerville Elks Lodge # 1068 host this event, the partnerships from our community partners, Somerville Borough, Fire and EMS, Somerset County Freeholders and County departments such as the Sheriff's and Prosecutor's Offices, musical performers (who all performed for free), non-profit exhibitors, Marines Care doing the Iwo Jima reenactment, Boy Scout Troops 84 and 1776, Girl Scouts and so many others contributing in different ways, are what made this the unique, fun, and moving event that it was. The Naturalization Ceremony was a special treat this year and we thank the US Citizenship and Immigration Services team for making this happen. A sincere thank you to all participants for the time, effort, and talent that you invested in this event for our community. The first 2 hours of the event will be televised on Ville TV, Cablevision Channel 15 and Verizon Channel 30 from in the coming weeks. Broadcast times will be listed on the Ville TV website http://somervilletv.com/ soon and streaming may also be available.
