Senator Lautenberg to Visit Annin Flag in Verona
A meet and greet reception with Senator Frank Lautenberg will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at Annin Flag Company, 163 Bloomfield Avenue in Verona.
U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-New Jersey) will visit Verona's Annin Flag Company, one of the world's oldest and largest manufacturers of flags, on Wednesday Oct. 24.
The meet and greet reception will give Verona residents the opportunity for an informal get-together with the Senator while enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
The event was organized by Verona Councilman Michael Nochimson with all funds going towards the Nochimson Now Campaign.
“This is an informal reception I am having for myself and it's nice of the Senator to stop by,” said Nochimson. “It will be a nice evening out at the United States' oldest flag maker that benefits Annin and will be a nice night out for the residents of Verona.”
Annin & Company, Verona's own landmark flag company has been in operation since World War I and has manufactured the American flag placed on the moon by Neil Armstrong as well as the flag raised over Iwo Jima.
The fundraising event will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wed. Oct. 24. Tickets are on sale at $150 per person, or $200 per couple.
