SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Students at Largo-Tibet Elementary got a lesson about the value of service, civic duties, and responsibilities on Tuesday afternoon.

The Elks Lodge 183 of Savannah presented the fourth and fifth grade students and teachers with copies of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence during a ceremony. 

"It's important for us to bring this information to them so they can know what great land we have, and if we don't give them some history of where we have come from, where we are, and where we hope to go, they may or may not get it elsewhere," said Cleveland Burkehalter of the Elks Lodge.

The ceremony was also held to celebrate the history and evolution of our nation's greatest symbol, the American flag.
