Years ago, the Gulfport Lions club donated an American flag to Gulfport Elementary, according to secretary Art Padula. When it wore out, the school asked for a new one, which the Lions provided.
"We're the good guys. I think we're the only nonprofit charitable org in Gulfport that does that kind of stuff," Mr. Padula said.
Jean Beum, president of the Gulfport Lions Club, and Art Padula, secretary, presented it to the principal, James Pribble, on the school’s closed-circuit morning news show Wednesday morning.
