Derry Area School District is honoring our Veterans in a special way! The Transition Technology class in the high school, in conjunction with Grandview Elementary and the Derry Area Foundation is building a Veterans Memorial between our wonderful Amphitheater and our historic One Room School House! The memorial will feature an octagon shaped cement slab surrounding a 35 foot flagpole. Each side of the octagon will be able to host a military flag donated by our local vets or benches to sit on and reflect or to enjoy our scenic campus. We are constructing this tribute through donations and fundraising. If you would like to assist us in honoring our veterans with a donation, checks can be made to Derry Area Foundation and memoed "Veterans Memorial". All funds raised will go to the construction and beautification of this patriotic site. If you have any questions, please call David McCleary at 724-694-2780.
Our veterans have sacrificed so that we and our students can have a future.
Please help us and our students create a reminder of their sacrifice for the future.
