Photo by Denise O’Connell The students and faculty of The Belle Harbor School presented a check for $2,000 to Tribute Park to assist with its ongoing beautification. Bernie Warnock accepted the check on the Park’s behalf in a special ceremony on Thursday, October 3rd.

The funds donated were raised from the sale of American flag pins made by the students and staff of the school. The pins were worn on September 11th this year, which was celebrated as “I’m Proud To Be An American Day” at The Belle Harbor School.

Teachers Jonathan Hoffman, Linda Norwich and Megan Donegan organized the fundraising effort.

The presentation to Tribute Park was made by some of the students whose families were directly impacted by the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
