RICHFIELD SPRINGS – Veterans were honored today at Richfield Springs Central School.

Since students are off tomorrow in honor of Veterans Day on Saturday, the students and staff took time today to give thanks to our veterans. Members of Central Valley Academy’s Junior ROTC program were there to present the colors while the school recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

There was also a flag folding ceremony to explain what each of the thirteen folds represent and the overall meaning.


“That shows a sign of respect for the families, the loved ones, and for the deceased,” said Wayne Dunckel of the Otsego County American Legion. “And today's extra special because the band member, Paul Blake, his Grandfather was in World War IM and we're folding his flag today. A World War I flag.”

Following the flag folding ceremony, the students in the gym stood silent as Taps played, and then members of the American Legion presented band director Paul Blake with his grandfather’s American flag.
