One Senior's Opinion: Knickerbocker holds patriotic picnic
Sunday, July 29, was a beautiful, sunny day. Residents of the Knickerbocker Apartments, their families and friends gathered ouside the building to hear the Fairview Concert Band salute our armed forces and serenade the audience with some golden oldies.
It was an upbeat afternoon consisting of gigantic hot dogs, lemonade and ice cream sundaes. Add a band concert on the front lawn under a group of shady trees and you have a perfect party. Even the weather cooperated.
The most touching part of the afternoom for me was the presentation of a brand new flag and pole donated to the Knickerbocker by several residents. Many thanks to Bruce Leigh for all of his efforts to make the new flag a reality. We are proud to have several retirees from the armed forces living at the Knickerbocker, including Bruce, retired Navy. It was a memorable afternoon.
