11/28/14  American Flag Donation

Preserve Our Past, Little Falls’ historic preservation organization, has recently had the honor of receiving an American flag which has flown over the national capitol of our country.  This respected gift was the result of a recommendation from New York Representative Bill Owens of the New York State’s 21st district who recognized Preserve Our Past as a leader in directing public attention toward the restoration needs of the city’s venerable 1916 City Hall.  Representative Owens’ letter of recognition states:

“I am writing to you commend you and Preserve Our Past for your leadership in the planned renovations of historic Little Falls, City Hall.  This project represents an investment in the people who live here, supporting local economic activity, and making the area a nicer place to live and work.  This project also encourages other members of the local community to invest in their own opportunities, renovations, and expansions.

Organizations like yours are ambassadors for our region.  Please accept the enclosed flag which was flown over the U.S. capitol, in recognition of this project, as well as my heart felt support as you continue your efforts.”

The donated American flag will be kept in secure storage awaiting the organization’s decision of where it could be offered for public display.
