Seniors in the Wellington C. Mepham High School Participation in Government classes will set up their ninth annual Flag Field of Honor this fall.

This year’s proceeds will benefit the Senior Service Learning Project’s partnership with Team Rubicon. Team Rubicon is a veteran-led humanitarian organization that serves global communities before, during, and after disasters and crises. Recognizing that veteran’s military training, service and experience make them uniquely qualified to respond to disasters, Team Rubicon positions veterans to make decisions and take action in the austere environment of disaster. Since its founding in 2010, Team Rubicon has equitably served communities both big and small from Hurricane Harvey in Texas to Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast, to Dengue Fever in the Marshall Islands, and, most recently, the fires in Maui, Hawaii.

Since its inception in 2009, the Mepham Senior Service Learning Project has raised over $693,000 for local and national charities through the generosity and support of our school community.

Those interested in honoring a family member or friend, please complete the attached form and return to Mepham High School Flag Field of Honor at 2401 Camp Ave., Bellmore, NY 11710 by Friday, Oct. 2.
