Today Pine Glen Elementary School had our Heroes Assembly. On this day every year we say a big thank you to the Burlington Fire and Police Departments and the brave men and women in the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy who keep us safe. We also take time to remember Thomas McGuinness, a former Pine Glen Student and Lt. Commander in the Navy, who our Pine Glen community lost on September 11, 2001. I would like to thank the McGuinness Family for attending our school assembly and all the men and women who keep our community safe.
