Veterans honored at Richfield Springs Central School

Veterans Get A Special

Many schools around the county are making an effort to honor and teach the significance of Veterans Day. "I think that is what makes our Veterans Day assembly so special, because the veterans are actually relatives of our students".

Zavalla ISD: Veterans Day program will be at 8:30 a.m. Friday in the school cafeteria.

Pineywoods Community Academy: Dr. Sarah Strinden Elementary will have a program Friday at noon to honor veterans.

Events will include presentations by the Farwell high School Band, an opening by Jillian Yule, representing the FHS Student Council and the Presentation of the Colors by the American Legion Post 558 and the Veterans of Foreign War Post 3039.

During the event, students from all grade levels performed songs such as "You're a Grand Old Flag", "Thank you, Solider" and "I love America" in front of attendees. The center offered students a chance to chat with veterans in the Pit over coffee and play corn hole with a veteran in the Student Union. For information, call Larry Kanfer at 217-398-2000.
