For the last four or five years, we veterans have been honored by the students at Twelve Bridges Elementary School. Through lovely songs and words, these students and teachers have made Veterans Day a very special occasion for vets. Kudos to the staff and students for their great work!
New this year, the students at Twelve Bridges Middle School have taken on the same challenge. After a wonderful buffet in the school library, we were escorted to the gymnasium where we entered to a rousing performance by the school orchestra. This was followed by poetry and oratory by various student leaders and more music by student musicians. Students were present in all areas to direct and assist the many veterans who attended.
Our gratitude and appreciation can never adequately be given so I’ll just say “great job.”
We truly have great schools in our community.
