A patriotic flag raising at WW Skill Center

Students and staff at Livonia Public Schools’ Western Wayne Skill Center were treated to a special flag ceremony this week, presented by members of the American Legion.

The school received a U.S. flag that was flown at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 26, 2014 to honor Michigan Statehood, which occurred on January 26,1837. The flag was requested through Congressman John Conyers’ office and was raised outside of the school on Ann Arbor Trail, west of Merriman, during a formal ceremony, led by the American Legion.  What a nice addition to the school property!
