Auburn Hills American Legion Post 143 Cmdr. Robert Schmaltz and post 143 past 18th District Cmdr. Joseph Lafnear will conduct a proper flag-folding demonstration on Dec. 8 for the students at Auburn Elementary School in Auburn Hills.
Previously, Auburn Elementary School secretary Beth Collyer, on behalf of Principal Jodie Middleton, had contacted Lafnear about the need for a new American flag for the school flag pole. Lafnear contacted Schmaltz about the request and it was decided the post would provide the flag and conduct the presentation.
