In recognition of Veteran’s Day, the Wildcat Foundation, the educational foundation serving Mechanicsburg Area School District, will sell 12-by-18-inch American flags for $20.
Flags will be displayed during Community Day at Mechanicsburg Middle School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 4. Those who purchase flags may pick them up between 1 p.m. and dusk. Flags not picked up by dusk should be picked up at the foundation office Nov. 6-10, during school hours.
Each flag will be personalized with a 6-by-8-inch placard with the name of the person being honored or remembered, their rank and branch of military and dates they served. The reverse side will carry an image of the American flag and badges of all seven branches of service (Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Department of Defense, Marines, National Guard and Navy).
All proceeds from the flag sale will support the Wildcat Foundation’s mission to support the educational, cultural, wellness and athletic programs of the Mechanicsburg Area School District.
