Flag Dedication Ceremony October 3, 2017

On Tuesday, October 3, we will be holding a flag dedication ceremony at Firelands High School.

Several organizations within Firelands High School have worked together to raise the funds needed to cover the purchase and installation of a 12 x 18 flag that is mounted to the gymnasium ceiling and will be lowered before the start of important events.

On October 3rd, our high school volleyball teams will be playing Brookside. Our JV game will begin at 5:30 pm and we will hold our ceremony in between the JV and Varsity games.

We are extending an invitation to all veteran organizations as well as our community to attend this Flag Dedication Ceremony.  In order to show the importance of such an event, Firelands students will not be charged an admission to the volleyball games.  Please join us on October 3rd at approximately 6:15 pm to pay your respects to our flag.
