Thank you to all who have participated in our Flags for Veterans Outreach to date!
Dedications received as of today, 11/12/17, will be recognized at an upcoming band concert and on our website, but will not be included on the tribute shirt the students will wear on the Pearl Harbor Trip. We need to print the shirts in time for the trip!
If you're interested in having one of the shirts that honors your loved one, we will be offering shirts for sale after we return from the trip - sometime in January. Stay tuned to this space for more information!
We do plan to continue this outreach program in the future - it's a wonderful opportunity for our students to serve and honor our military community!
