NLC Game Day! Our junior high basketball teams are playing at home today against West Franklin. Games will start at 4:30 at NHHS.
Northern Heights is happy to announce that we will once again be participating in the National Honor Flight program! NH will be sending five veterans, accompanied by five student guardians on a two day trip to Washington DC alongside the Honor Flight programs from Lyndon and Central Heights. While the exact dates are still to be determined, it will take place during the first week of June, 2023. The Honor Flight Network strives to recognize American veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington, DC to visit their service memorial at no cost. The Honor Flight Network is currently accepting applications from veterans of WW II, Korea, Vietnam, and terminally ill veterans. The Honor Flight Network achieves this goal safely by furnishing guardians who fly with each veteran on every flight to provide assistance and help veterans to have a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience. Instructions for completing the reservation and returning it can be found on the form. Please send any questions or requests for donations to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Upcoming fundraisers will be announced in the coming weeks. We will also create an online donation option for those who wish to do so. Please feel free to share this application to any veteran in the North Lyon County area you feel may be interested! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tJrA8WkDvjWRyDQXQollBm-DyTxNwo1m/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=107157655762643834040&rtpof=true&sd=true
