The flags are now flying on the front lawn of H.D. Fayette School for the North Merrick Field of Flags 2021!
In a brief outdoor ceremony due to continued COVID safety protocols, the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Cynthia Seniuk, gave her introductory remarks, and Board President Megan Ryan thanked the Old Mill Road Student Council for hosting the event this year.
Members of the OMR Student Council Executive Board spoke about the meaning of the Field of Flags and why they selected the Tunnel to Towers Foundation as the charity for this year's flag sponsorships. They then commemorated the Field of Flags on behalf of the district, the Board of Education, and the Merrick American Legion Post 1282. Members of the North Bellmore Fire Department were present to sound their sirens at the conclusion of the ceremony.
Residents are invited to take photos within the Field of Flags and send their photos to email@example.com to be included in a community photo gallery on the district website. (Please identify the persons in the photo.)
