Weekend Update – Flag Day and Father’s Day

Dear Resident,

Today is Flag Day.  On this date in 1777, our country adopted our US Flag and, to this day, the flag is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation. If you have a worn or unused flag, please bring to the drop box in Town Hall or the Marlboro Fire House so that it is disposed of correctly.

This Sunday is Father’s Day and we thank all our fathers who have been there for us now and in the past. The Marlboro Farmers Market is open from 9am to 1pm.  Make the market your first stop as you pick up all your BBQ needs. Meats, cheeses, pickles, breads, fish, eggs, beer and spirits will make your gathering extra special.  Follow us on social media @MarlboroFarmersMarket for updates.  Notice of weekly vendors are made to social media and our website HERE
