Dear Staten Island Principal,

On behalf of si350,Inc. I am pleased to invite your school to send four students as our guests to participate in a unique historic and patriotic event to celebrate the 350th anniversary of Staten Island. A “Living Flag” will be created by 350 Staten Island youth on July 22, 2011 at the Staten Island Yankee Stadium/ Richmond County Ballpark. To thank them for their participation, each of your students will be our guest for the evening’s 7pm Staten Island Yankee game, and will also receive an additional guest ticket. Each student and their guest will receive a free food pass and a commemorative “T” shirt.

Si350, Inc. is a not-for-profit, borough-wide coalition of cultural and educational institutions to strengthen the New York and Staten Island community through the promotion of pride, tourism and knowledge about our shared and diverse past. Our organization has created and promoted lectures and conferences and published books and produced videos that highlight the rich history of Staten Island, our diverse communities and our contributions to New York and the world beyond.

The “Living Flag” is a particularly important event because it will showcase 350 Staten Island youth, who will be descend on the field at the conclusion of the game. Most will be holding individual tiles or signboards in red, white, blue or stars, making up sections of the American Flag, filling up a good part of the outfield. Others will be holding small individual flags. We hope it will be recorded as the largest “living” American Flag ever displayed in New York City. The event promises to be an enjoyable evening for the children and their guests. The evening will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display over New York Harbor.

We request that you select four (4) students aged 10 or above to represent your school on July 22nd. Please e-mail Robert Coghlan, co-chair, at info@si350.org as soon as possible if you choose for your school to participate. Please note: It is likely we will hold a practice session in the weeks preceding “The Living Flag” display.

Enclosed is a release form for each of the students. It is imperative that these forms are returned as soon as possible. The event will receive both print and TV publicity. Also, please let us know who will be your school contact person, if other than yourself, for this activity. If you have any questions please call 718-390-3309 to reach Prof. Lori Weintrob, Wagner College, co-chair si350, Inc. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.

Robert Coghlan, si350 President and Leticia Remauro, si350 Event Co-chair

Consent form attached.
