Field of Flags 2018
There will be a ground-breaking and commemorative ceremony for the North Merrick Field of Flags on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at 3:15 pm at the Harold D. Fayette School, 1057 Merrick Avenue. After the short ceremony, boy scouts and girl scout volunteers will help to put up the flags. There will be 100 flags all together.
North Merrick School District would like very much for the American Legion Post 1282 to participate in the ceremony and give a brief speech to commemorate the flags being sponsored in honor of loved ones who served. The flags will fly through Memorial Day and Flag Day until the end of the school year.
