Merrick Avenue Middle School will install its Flag Field of Honor in recognition of veterans — a new tradition for the school.
“We hope that the members of the MAMS community will join us in creating our first field of honor by honoring your friends and/or family members who have served our country and sponsor a flag,” said Principal Katelyn Dunn.
The flags will be flown between Nov. 5 and Dec. 10 as a tribute to veterans. The proceeds from the sponsorships will be donated to Honor Flight Long Island for veterans, and the Bellmore-Merrick Community Cupboard.
The Mack Family, who have a seventh grade student attending Merrick Avenue Middle School, have secured supplies, storage and materials in order to aid in this field coming to fruition.
