Students across grade levels at East Quogue Elementary School recently participated in the third annual Flag Day Ceremony that celebrated the American flag and honored veterans from surrounding communities.

As part of the event, organized by Susan Masera, the East Quogue marching band performed “You’re a Grand Old Flag” under the direction of Penni Russo. Accompanying the band were fifth- and sixth-grade students who sang along from the sidelines. 

On Wednesday evening, the marching band will take the field of Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip for its final performance of the year, where it will perform the national anthem prior to the Long Island Ducks baseball game.
