Area towns, schools to hold Veterans Day ceremonies

"Well, I think it's very important that all these young kids that are here today see this mainly so that they can understand what these guys had to go through because on the calendar it will just say 'Veterans Day, ' but they don't know what that means until they actually see what a veteran is".

The program at Geneva Middle School North, 1357 Viking Drive, Geneva, now in its 21st year, draws almost 75 local veterans, the release stated.

Bednarek and Ed Carlson - who started the program together as teachers - singled out the Military Honors Simulation as one of the program's most memorable features.

Immediately after the program, lunch will be served in the lobby. "Each year veterans are encouraged to attend and it's open to the public".

The Wetzel County Farm Bureau is planning its third annual dinner for veterans, to be held November 18, 2:30 p.m.at the Sportsman's Club.

Also on November 9, the Marianna Veterans Affairs Clinic will host a Veteran's Day celebration from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by the Sandhill Sisters Plus band at 10 a.m., the Tabitha Morris band at 11:50, and the Big and Loud Band at 12:30.

The event begins with a continental breakfast from 8 to 9 a.m. provided for all veterans in the school cafeteria.

The Grayling High School Student Senate will host a Veteran's Day Assembly at 9:26 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, in the Joseph H. Stripe Auditorium, located in the school at 1135 North Old U.S. 27.

Communities in Rock, Walworth and Green counties have planned several events to remember veterans past and present in honor of Veterans Day, which is Saturday.

UW-Whitewater will host a series of events and services for Veterans Day, highlighted by a Veterans Day ceremony Friday and a veterans and military appreciation football game Saturday.

Crawford County Veterans Hall of Fame President Chuck Christman will keynote a 2:00 p.m. assembly at the Secondary School. As soon as visitors enter the campus, they will be guided by parking attendants and then students who greet and guide them. The dinner runs from 5 to 7 p.m., and the Jack Farina Big Band will perform music for dancing from 7 to 10 p.m. The public is invited to attend. A moment of silence and words of dedication will be offered to honor the American soldiers killed in West Africa.
