Honoring Our Veterans

In preparation for Veteran’s Day tomorrow, I thought I’d post this information about what we’re doing in LaVergne to honor our military veterans.

When Jeff McCann was principal of Roy Waldron School (and probably principals before him), they had a Veterans’ Day Ceremony every year.  Mr. McCann is now at LaVergne Lake Elementary and he continues the tradition.  According to the Daily News Journal,

La Vergne Lake Elementary hosts its annual Veterans Day celebration at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the school gym. Two students will read brief stories they have written about veterans. Some fifth-graders will be writing letters to veterans that will be hand-delivered by a teacher to the York VA in Murfreesboro.

In addition, Mayor Erwin will speak at VFW Post 8422.

11 a.m. VFW Post 8422 ceremony at Town Hall, 315 S. Lowry St. La Vergne Mayor Ronnie Erwin will serve as guest speaker, Smyrna Fire Department Honor Guard to present the colors at 11 a.m. Open house after 11 a.m. at post, 10157 Old Nashville Highway.

If you can’t attend these events, please remember to thank a veteran tomorrow.  After the shootings at Ft. Hood, Texas we are reminded that these people put their lives on the line every day for our country.  Their service is truly heroic.
