The Bellmore School District has removed the damaged American Flag that was hanging at Bruce H. Gary Field of Heroes near the Charles A. Reinhard Early Education Center.
On Tuesday, an anonymous Bellmore resident posted an article bringing attention to the fact that the flag was still hanging, and after receiving inquiry from Patch, the district took it down and officials released the following statement.
"The Bellmore Public Schools is dismayed to learn of the condition of the American Flag flying on the Bruce Gary Field," they said. "While on district owned property, the Bellmore Little League is responsible for the upkeep of the field and grounds. Since being made aware of the condition, the district has rectified the situation."
