This is the tenth school year of my retirement. A fellow retired teacher returns to our school to help plan a special program honoring the veterans who have a connection with the school. She enlists some of us to assist, and that is where I headed at 6:40 on Monday morning! Yikes! That is really early for this retiree!:-)

The program was really good, with music performed by the local middle school orchestra, and a speech given by a local TV news anchor. I was really glad I began my day early in my red, white, and blue just to have a chance to show appreciation to this great group of veterans!
Thank you for reading. I appreciate your comments.
Nellie what a great event to help with! Our Veterans deserve to be remembered always.ReplyDelete

Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!ReplyDelete
So good of you, to participate. Bet it gave you a warm feeling.
Nellie, My daughter is a fifth grade teacher...she has always had a program for the vets. She loves it, but has lost some of the sweet old vets that have come to school for years. Service people from the near by air base come too. It's a nice learning experience for the children. xo, SusieReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate Veterans Day. : )ReplyDelete
How wonderful a day that had to have been, my friend.ReplyDelete
This is the first year, since having grandchildren in school, that we've missed. Our youngest granddaughter had the flu. It's a great thing for the schools to do this and allow the younger generation to learn about what the wonderful veterans and current servicemen and women, have done and are doing, for us.ReplyDelete
So glad events like yours take place, Nellie, especially to teach our little ones.ReplyDelete
Thanks for all your visits and comments on my blog and tell Glenda the same. I don't have any address for her but I appreciate visits from both of you! Susan
Susan, thank you for your inspirational posts! I truly appreciate your upbeat attitude and I also enjoy looking at your lovely collections!ReplyDelete
While I didn't help with any programs for Veterans' Day, I did attend one that was presented by our elementary students at our Christian school, and those children gave me chills with their singing and recitations! When we opened the program with the pledges to the American and Christian flags and to the Bible, I got misty-eyed, just thinking about all that was sacrificed so we could have the freedoms that we take for granted. I hope we NEVER lose our love for our nation!
Nellie- What a wonderful event to participate in. I am so happy you were able to do it. xo DianaReplyDelete
