In our coverage of the Emmaus Flag Day program in the June 26 edition of The Press, we noted Marge Heatley as being the Woman’s Club of Emmaus Flag Day president. She is president of the Emmaus Flag Day Association. Pat Stasko and Pat Waller are co-chairs of the Woman’s Club of Emmaus’s Flag Day Committee. The Woman’s Club of Emmaus’s Flag Day Committee is passing the Emmaus Flag Day program to the Emmaus Rotary Club. The program is not being discontinued but being carried on by the Emmaus Rotary Club. We apologize for the errors.
