At the 23rd annual Laurel Alumni Banquet Saturday evening, held at the newly remodeled banquet at the Laurel Fire Hall, president Cathy Parker asked the 350 attendees to stand and pledge allegiance to the flag.
Heads turned 360 degrees looking for an American flag; there was none. Apparently an oversight on the part of the fire department after the remodling.
Most conference/banquet halls carry a state and American flag. An oversight I am sure will not happen again.
The remodeled hall is beautiful, the food always delicious, and the service extra superb.
