QUEENS, NY -- On Saturday, May 18th, the Delta Company of the Patriot Battalion at Francis Lewis High School went to St. Mary’s Hospital for Children to construct a tranquility garden for the parents of the deceased children. Working with the staff of the hospital, the Cadets were able to acquire important skills such as teamwork, communication, and selfless service. This is not the only time the Cadets have worked closely with the faculty of St. Mary’s Hospital; they first began their cooperation back in early November, where they helped create the foundation of the garden. The staff and parents of the hospital can now visit the garden whenever they desire to seek moment of peace.

Teamwork truly is the key to success!
