COUNTY CLERK ATTENDS FLAG DAY CEREMONY AT ABBEY LANE SCHOOL
(Mineola, NY) Nassau
County Clerk Maureen O’Connell joined other area officials, first graders and faculty
for the Flag Day Celebration at Abbey Lane Elementary School in Levittown. The
children celebrated many things about our flag and country. With
their teachers guidance the students sang patriotic songs and shared
interesting information with the audience about our Nations flag.
Clerk O’Connell is pleased to provide
area schools with brochures about our Great Nations Flag and the
proper etiquette to be observed to show respect to it.
A key to understanding our Nation’s history can be found in the
evolution of our ‘Stars and Stripes’. The American Flag is
a symbol of the freedoms and liberties we as a country have fought for and
defended throughout our rich history. Teaching our children
the traditions of our flag and how to display proper reverence towards
it is an important part of their learning experience.
