of HGAR raises
fl ag on national
BY BRONX TIMES
Earlier this year storms destroyed the line to the fl ag pole at
the Bronx chapter of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors,
leaving them without a pole for fi ve months.
Fortunately, the American Legion Post 19 approached the
organization to help restore it. With their help and the Fire Department,
the pole was relined.
On June 14, Flag Day, HGAR raised its new fl ag at 1867 Williamsbridge
Road and completed this community project.
“We wanted to show our appreciation for all the help we received
from the local community, and that’s what made this
Flag Day so special,” said Eliezer Rodriguez, director of advocacy,
commercial and legislative issues for Bronx and Manhattan.
“Our association has been part of this community for many
years and we are so fortunate to have such wonderful neighbors.”
