Seniors in the Mepham High School Participation in Government classes set up the 9th Annual Flag Field of Honor Oct. 29.
This year's proceeds benefit the Senior Service Learning Project's partnership with Team Rubicon. Team Rubicon is a veteran-led humanitarian organization that serves global communities before, during, and after disasters and crises. Recognizing that veteran’s military training, service, and experience make them uniquely qualified to respond to disasters, Team Rubicon positions veterans to make decisions and take action in the austere environment of disaster. Since its founding in 2010, Team Rubicon has equitably served communities both big and small from Hurricane Harvey in Texas to Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast, to Dengue Fever in the Marshall Islands, and most recently the fires in Maui, Hawaii.
Since its inception in 2009, the Mepham Senior Service Learning Project has raised nearly $700,000 for local and national charities through the generosity and support of the school community.
Organized by teachers Kerry Dennis or Chris Patten, the installation will remain on the school's Camp Avenue lawn for approximately a month.
