Welcome to the Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce
The Vietnam Veterans of America Major Louis Guillermin Memorial, Chester County Chapter 436 presented a $2000 donation to the Chester County Friends of the Flag Committee and the Downingtown-Thorndale Chamber of Commerce at its May meeting.
The funds will be used to perpetuate the tradition (since 2001) of flying a 30 x 60 United States flag at the Veterans Memorial in the Borough of Downingtown. The current project includes repainting the flag pole and the purchase new flags. The last large flag was destroyed some time ago and only a smaller 15 x 30 flag is currently available. The group will have the flag pole painted and a new 30 x 60 flag purchased in time to display it on Memorial Day weekend.
At the May meeting, Dr. John Maher, President of VVA 436 presented a check for $2000 to Dr. Mario Spoto and Jay G Fischer, Esq. Both are Directors of the Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce and are members of the Chester County Friends of the Flag Committee.
