I want to express my appreciation and gratitude to the children and staff at the Elger Bay Elementary School for the Veterans Day celebration. Dr. Jon Evavold and his staff gave us a warm welcome, with the invitation to stand with our children and grandchildren.
The slide show presentation from Jennifer Caldwell was captivating. Being a school teacher and a veteran going to Iraq, she brought back the good things that we are doing there.
The 5th grade students sang “The Star Spangled Banner,” “Heart of America,” “This Is My Country” and “Grateful To Be an American.” The Cub Scout color guard led the Pledge of Allegiance, and Jon ended the assembly reciting the words to Taps, making the day a treasured memory.
Jon, Jennifer and our Elger Bay educators, lead on.
