(HUGUENOT, NY) – Deerpark Town Supervisor Karl A. Brabenec, Orange County Legislator Dennis W. Simmons and the members of the Deerpark Town Board will be holding a news conference and ceremony on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 12:00 PM in front of Deerpark Town Hall to raise the historic Gadsden “Don’t Tread On Me” Flag on the town’s flag pole.
The news conference and raising ceremony of the flag is in response to the New Rochelle City Council voting to remove the historic flag from the New Rochelle Armory. The yellow Gadsden flag featuring a coiled snake and the phrase, “Don’t Tread On Me” is steeped in U.S. history dating back to its founding. It has been used by Marines and the Navy since 1775 and is often flown at Marine Corp bases and on Navy warships.
Deerpark Town Hall is located at 420 US Route 209, Huguenot, New York 12746.
For more information on the news conference or directions to town hall, please contact Deerpark Supervisor Karl A. Brabenec at 845-742-5131
