A Remsen teen wants to cover the front lawn of the Remsen Central School with American Flags this Memorial Day. It's all part of a community project called 'Remsen Remembers.'

15 year-old Elisha Hamilton started 'Remsen Remembers' to not only honor our military but to raise money for Sitrin's military rehabilitation program, which provides care for wounded warriors who have post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, amputation, and other combat related conditions.


Elisha has family in the military and says they all made it home safe, 'so I wanted to help those who weren't as fortunate.'

Flags can be purchased for $5 through Remsen Students, at the Remsen VFW and several local Remsen businesses, including the Soda Fountain. You can even include a note to be attached to the flag post.

The flags will be displayed on the school lawn following a short ceremony on Friday May 23rd, at 6:30 pm and stay out until Monday May 26th.

Let’s show all of our veterans, active duty, and military family members that Remsen Remembers.
