Lincoln Patriots Dusty and Laykin did their prideful duty early Wednesday!! Great job guys!
This month at Lincoln Elementary, the young Patriots have been learning about RESPECT as part of their Character Counts curriculum. In conjunction with that theme, numerous veterans were on hand as guest speaker Sgt. Eric Page addressed the students about respect for the flag and respect for each other. The students received instruction on "saluting" as well from Sgt. Page, a gesture in the military signifying respect.
The Lincoln Patriots invited Wellington's First Responders to a Heroes Luncheon on Monday to commemorate the 9/11 terrorist tragedy 16 years ago in New York City, Washington, D.C. and western Pennsylvania. The students and staff honored their "LOCAL HEROES" with a luncheon and then a salute to the USA, by forming the letters U - S - A on their playground and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance together. Awesome event Patriots and very awesome local heroes as well. Thank you for all you do, 24/7, year-round.
