“I am so proud of the collective efforts of our associates and homeowners in Baltimore,” said Michael Mendillo, president, FirstService Residential. “Under the leadership of Silo Point General Manager, Chris Petrik, this incredible team spent the day making a significant impact on the school’s interior and exterior delivering to the students and faculty a school they can be proud to enter each day.”

A group of nearly 60 sponsors and over 130 volunteers spent the day completing numerous projects at the school, including:

In conjunction with the Day of Service, a U. S. flag was donated to FSK. On Sept. 13 students from the school were on hand to witness the flag flying for the first time at Locust Point’s Fort McHenry, birthplace of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. The flag flew at Fort McHenry for the day, was returned to FSK and raised on Sept. 14 at the school, which will be its permanent home.
