West Central Middle School To Observe Veterans Day

West Central Middle School in Stronghurst, Illinois is having a special program to observe Veterans Day and we want to invite you.

The West Central Middle School in Stronghurst, Illinois would like to invite any veterans in our community to our school on Friday, November 9 at 9:30 in observance of Veterans Day. Our special guest will be Mr. Gary Schrock with the Patriot Guard Riders. The teachers and students are planning a program to celebrate Veterans Day again this year. Our local American Legion will be here to post the colors and our scout troops will be leading the pledge. The high school band will be performing a patriotic medley as well as leading the entire audience in singing our national anthem. We have several special activities planned for our local veterans. It is our hope that we will honor these men and women who have served us.

We are asking everyone in the community to send us the names of active military in the area so we can list them in our program.

Please take time out of your busy schedules to come and honor those who have served this great nation. You do not have to be a veteran to come. We want to invite the entire community.
