STEM Academy Field Of Flags: Honoring Veterans
In a cooperative effort between NHS and the Veteran's Help Club, on display out in front of the STEM Academy is a field of 100 plus flags. NHS assisted in selling the flags and the Veteran's Help Club assisted with displaying the flags out in front of the school for Veteran's Day. Proceeds from the sale of the flags will be donated to the Coffee Cup in Downingtown, to sponsor meals for 20 local Veterans.
The Veterans’ Help Club is led by Dominic Harclerode, AJ Lamb, Clay Smart, and Luke Heckler. We mainly volunteer at the SouthEastern Pennsylvania Veterans Home in Spring City. Our volunteer work extends far beyond mere assistance; we aim to bring joy, engagement, and a sense of belonging to the veterans residing there. Playing bingo, event organization, and creating posters and digital artwork are just a few things that we do at the veterans' home. Moreover, our club fosters companionship, storytelling, and genuine connection, in an attempt to enrich the lives of those who have served. Our unwavering commitment demonstrates a deep respect and gratitude for the veterans' service.
