Field of Honor at Floral Park Memorial

On May 16, Floral Park Memorial R.O.O.T.S. Christian Club, in conjunction with Student Council, held a moving ceremony to commemorate Memorial Day and honor the nation’s fallen heroes. The “Field of Honor,” in its third year at Floral Park, is a magnificent display of red, white and blue surrounding the school’s athletic fields. It is dedicated to those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. The ceremony was led by the 11th New York Regiment of United States Volunteers – America, Mr. Marius Vanenburg, a faculty member and former Marine Corps corporal, as well as Mr. Dennis Burgos, a Floral Park alumni and Marine. Floral Park Memorial’s Long Island Sounds led the national anthem and the singing of “God Bless America.” Due to inclement weather the ceremony was held in the auditorium.
