Presenting the Colors
On Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2008 the United States flag was raised at the newly-constructed insurance office of John C. Ferneding & Associates at 5540 Far Hills Avenue by the V.F.W. Color Guard in a formal flag raising ceremony.
Accompanied by Boy Scout Troop 516 and 40-plus on-lookers, the Color Guard presented the colors, played taps, and read from an official protocol script on flag raising. The chill in the air was quickly forgotten by the warm and touching comments about the many sacrifices our men and women in uniform in all of the military branches have made for our freedom.
