Austintown Fitch’s National Honor Society took some time to give a helping hand Tuesday afternoon.

Marine veteran Meter Fromel decided last year to decorate his neighborhood with flags for Memorial Day, but was looking for some help this year. He reached out to the Austintown Fitch High School and the National Honor Society was more than willing to help him out.

The group walked along Edenburg and Ayrshire Drives in Austintown planting flags. The group will collect them on July 9 and they will be disposed of properly.

“It’s not about me, what I’m doing. It’s what they’re doing, because what we did is what we have now,” said Fromel.

“It’s something that people sometimes put aside and forget to do, but you should always go and say thank you to anyone you know for serving our country,” said Lynnette Seebacher.

All the flags have a story, too. They have all flown on the grave of a veteran in Calvary Cemetery on a past Memorial Day.
