Children celebrate Veteran’s Day with local heroes

By: Bonnie Krueger

Local veterans were honored and thanked by the Kirk Day School students at the school’s annual Veterans Day Chapel on Friday, Nov. 11. Fifth-grade students led the school ceremony, which began with a procession of service members, followed by a history of events leading to the observance of the holiday and an awareness of the many freedoms service members have fought to protect. Veterans were invited to a reception with the children to share stories of their military service. Students gave veterans letters of thanks and crafts.
