The Community Foundation funded a grant of $10,000 for the installation of one of the three flag poles erected at the Upper St. Clair Veterans Monument Park. The flags flown at the monument are those of the United States of America, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Township of Upper St. Clair.
The investment of Community Foundation funds in this project furthers the interest of the Education & Life Long Learning focus group. Community recognition of those who have made a personal commitment and sacrifice to the protection of the freedom of our country and every citizen, is a teaching tool for future generations and a reminder to all who view the monument, even in passing. The concept for honoring veterans and the first fundraising effort was spearheaded by high school teachers and alum Todd Flynn as a class initiative.
