Did you attend the flag raising and open house at the Roebling Museum on Saturday, June 27? Well, if you did or if you took any photos, then you can help Linda Kocsis Anderson. Her dad, Louis C. Kocsis, donated the 36-foot American flag. Linda is in the process of making a scrapbook photo album as one-of-a-kind gift for her dad to remember his special day. If you can give/donate her any photos taken that day, she is willing to pay you for them. Photos do not need to be of her dad. Lou Kocsis purchased this flag eight or nine years ago and has anxiously been waiting for the day of the flag raising. He has asked his daughter “When?” every year. You can see how important this is to Lou and also to his daughter, Linda, to do this for dad. If you can help her, please call her at 609-499-9494 as soon as possible. If there are any videos that would be great! I’m sure many of you know Lou, Let’s help Linda make him happy! Thank you!
