Today was our Veterans' Day celebration at school. It was a big program and a big breakfast afterward for the visiting vets. This is a great opportunity to show our students what patriotism is and to thank the people who have fought so that they can be free.
This year was especially good in that our speaker was a former POW in Korea - for almost three years. He had much to tell the young people, and they were listening closely.
Here are some of the displays in the lobby. Anyone connected with our school or church could bring a picture of themselves or any family members who were involved in the military. We always have a big assortment.
Dear friends, Allison and Carrie, daughters of other dear friends. They brought the speaker, and Allison, on the left, introduced him during the program. Always so good to be with them and anyone in their family.
And finally - my eighth grade choric speakers. They did a great job!! Very proud of them!!
