Last fall, the teachers at the Space Coast Early Intervention Center (SCEIC) set a goal to have an American flag pole at the school. Now, thanks to local VFW Post #4206, this goal will be brought to life on August 5th, at 11:00 am. The community is encouraged to attend this event, which will take place at the school, located at 3790 Dairy Rd. Melbourne, FL 32904.
Local dignitaries are set to speak at the event, while the VFW Women’s Auxiliary and Rolling Thunder will be presenting the flags and overseeing the ceremony. Perhaps one of the most special moments, however, will be the 5-year-old students of SCEIC singing and pledging the newly raised flag. Following the ceremony, SCEIC is excited to host a picnic and photo op, where teachers and community members alike can pose with the newly raised flag.
“At SCEIC, not only do we challenge our students to set goals for themselves, but we also challenge our staff to set team goals for success as well. Adding a flag pole was a collaborative goal that our teachers set last year,” said Terri Clark, SCEIC’s Executive Director. “As a non-profit school, we rely on the support of our community to make things like this happen. Without the help of the VFW, we wouldn’t have been able to reach this goal. This ceremony will be special indeed – There won’t be a dry eye in the crowd!”
