The American Legion donated 36 US flags, poles and wall brackets to Bennett Elementary. The donation followed an article that was pulished in the Detroit News in June regarding two bills pending in the state legislature that would requre schools to display an American flag in every room. Douglas Williams, Legislative Affairs Chairman, American Legion Department of Michigan, promised to provide US flags to schools in need in that article. Bennett reached out to him, and less than a month later the flags were presented.
