AHS students replace flags at cemetery for Memorial Day

students walk with American flags

About 50 Amsterdam High School students volunteered May 25 to replace the American flags on the graves of deceased veterans at St. Stanislaus Cemetery in Amsterdam. This has become a tradition for students studying AP Government and U.S. History as they learn the true meaning of Memorial Day by giving back to their community. Assisting were students in the Special Needs program at the school.
