Veterans Come to Mt. Loafer

Submitted by larraine.nelson on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 16:59

The students at Mt. Loafer had a special assembly to honor our local Veterans.  These brave men came and talked about where they had served and a little about what they did in the Armed Forces.  There were even a couple of fathers, Mr. Foster and Mr. Davenport, who are fathers of students at our school, who shared where they had served and what they had done for our country.  Mrs. Brown had the First and Second Graders sing a special song to the Veterans.  We can't express enough appreciation for all that these courageous people did for our country.
