To the editor:
At the US Bank branch in Toronto, we take great pride on Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day in displaying American flags all around the outside of our branch at 217 N. Third St.
This is all done by the fine gentlemen of American Legion Post 86 in Toronto, who supply the flags and do all of the work in displaying them for us. This year, they were put out right before Memorial Day weekend and, on Saturday of that same weekend, it was apparent that they were stolen by somebody. This was the first time this had ever happened, and we felt terrible. Low and behold, by Sunday the guys saw they were gone, and again took their time and came and put new flags around.
At the Memorial Day service at the gazebo on Monday, they were proudly displayed for everybody to see. I personally am so grateful for this and just wanted to say a great big thank you to these fine gentlemen. It is my absolute privilege to know and be associated with each and every member of our great American Legion Post 86 in Toronto. Thank you for the countless things you do for others that make our community stand out proudly.
