Legionnaires, Knights of Columbus install flag at St. Mary Cemetery

Legionnaires John Wille and Chuck Trado hoist up the American flag at St. Mary Cemetery on North Street Saturday, July 21. Members of the Knights of Columbus and American Legion Post 78 installed and dedicated the flag on behalf of Ridgefield’s faithfully deceased. “Our fellow fallen brother Knights and all those who’ve defended our country,” said Grand Knight Phil Del Giudice of the Knights of Columbus. The dedication ceremony was led by George Besse and an honor guard representing American Legion Post 78. Monsignor Lawrence Bronkiewicz, also a Knight and pastor of St. Mary Parish, shared a prayer of remembrance and blessed the flag once raised. — Steve Coulter photo
