Byram Shubert Library’s program was an inspiring patriotic display

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I write to you to let everyone know that the musical program performed at the Byram Shubert Library on Thursday, Feb. 20, was outstanding.

The theme of the program was patriotism, and the performer Dan Clark (known as the Singing Trouper) and his lovely wife, Mary, were able to weave red, white and blue notes into a beautiful musical tapestry.

Dan also narrated a patriotic poem entitled Remember Me. His performance includes a potpourri of trivia and anecdotes about their selections of music and the composers. The audience showed its appreciation with a spirited standing ovation at the conclusion of the program.

Mary-Ann Zalman is the chairperson of the Friends of the Byram Shubert Library and has been for many years. The purpose of this letter is to express my sincere and deep appreciation to each and every person who contributed to make this program a beautiful and patriotic evening.

The entire program was a small but heartfelt tribute to our troops and to our country. As a World War II veteran with service in the South Pacific, the Philippines and the occupation of Japan, this is very important to me and I hope the success of this program will not only encourage more programs with patriotic songs, music and poetry but also inspire our young people.

The New York Times has said that over 400 World War II veterans die every day, and events like this are an opportunity to pay tribute, in a small way, to our troops and to our country in a time other than Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.

God bless America.
