PUNXSUTAWNEY — PAHS senior Amy Jo Parente was in need of an idea for a senior project.

Deciding to see if anyone needed help at Mulberry Square Elder Care &

Rehabilitation Center, she met Vickie Amundson, Mulberry activities director, who came up with the idea of doing a handprint flag.

Veterans from all over are invited to take part in this project, where they will put their handprints on what soon will be a replica of the U.S. flag.

Now begins the process of making the red stripes.
