One of our seniors, Gavin Nelson, has stepped up and is raising money to install a retractable flag in our gym. Please see his letter below for more information. Dear Blackhawk family, My name is Gavin Nelson and I am a senior at Hinton. I am currently working on a project that I would like to share with you. I am raising money for a fund called “Blackhawk Flag Fund.” The money collected will be used to purchase a flag that I will donate to Hinton Schools to be used in the high school gym. The company Morgan Rolling Flags has large flags that hang from the ceiling of the gym and can be rolled down using a remote. The cost of the size I’d like to order is approximately $6000. My goal is to get enough money to order the flag and have it installed by November 11th, so it can be dedicated that day during our Veteran’s Day program. The last few weeks I have been going to businesses asking for donations and have also reached out to family and friends; I am very close to my goal! I would like to extend the invitation to the entire Blackhawk family to help me reach my goal. If you are willing to donate to the fund for the new flag, you have a few options. Donations can be made through venmo @blackhawkflag, dropped off at People’s Bank in Hinton, or mailed to my home address. If you are writing a check, please make it out to “Blackhawk Flag Fund.” With your generous donation, we’d like you to also submit the name(s) of any veteran you would like to be honored at the dedication ceremony. Please include their name, branch, and any war they bravely fought in. This information can be included on the venmo app or emailed to email@example.com. Any questions, feel free to email or contact me at (712) 635-1586. Thank you, Gavin Nelson 1110 S Falcon Ct Hinton, IA 51024
