The “Respect for our Flag program” is off to a wonderful start. The organization gave flag presentations to more than 20 third, fourth and fifth grade students at the School of the Osage upper elementary school. Newcomers /Longtimers gives 8 x 12" flags to all students in these, and upper grades, and flag stickers to lower grades.
The goal of NCLT’s program is to teach the students how to honor and show respect the flag of our country. Any veteran, police or fire fighter is welcome to accompany one of our speaker to tell the students what the flag means to him/her. Donations to purchase additional flags would be appreciated as we hope to expand our presentations into the high schools and other area schools.
