FlagLadiesAll military families in the Central Maine area are invited to a free showing this Sunday afternoon of One Tuesday Morning, a new feature documentary film about the Freeport Flag Ladies.

The film is a touching and stirring account of the Freeport Flag Ladies as well as an historical documentary film which asks the viewer to think deeply about what being a patriot means to them.  Since the film touches upon issues of war and peace, and has a few pictures of civilian casualties, it is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.

"We are very glad to be able to offer this Christmas gift to military families in conjunction with the University of Maine Augusta and the Kennebec Maine Military Community Services," said Walter Skold, President of Parnassus films.

"The Freeport Flag Ladies are like three living statues of Liberty and people who attend the film will have the chance to greet them and thank them for their 11 years of tireless service," he added.  There will be a $100 Christmas raffle for anyone who wears Red, White and Blue to the event.

"The film will have a public preview in January, and will be entered in film festivals around the USA," said Skold, "But we wanted military families to be the first people in Maine to have the opportunity to see this inspiring story."
