UPCOMING EVENTS TO HONOR VETERANS
|SAD #4 VETERANS’ DAY TRIBUTE
The students and staff of SAD #4 are inviting area veterans and the general public to attend their Ninth Annual Veterans’ Day Tribute on Friday, November 8th at 1:15 PM. “We’ve certainly created a tradition,” noted Kevin Harrington, Piscataquis Community Secondary School Principal. “But it’s a tradition that seems to have more meaning every year and it’s anything but a habit.”
This year organizers are planning some of the traditional patriotic music, student presentations, and selected readings that will feature students and staff from grades three through twelve. The ambitious program will also feature the Marine Corps League and includes the Armed Forces Theme Song Salute which typically brings the entire audience to its feet as the school and community honors veterans and those who serve in each branch of the service.
The tribute will be held in the Piscataquis Community Secondary School Gymnasium in order to accommodate the anticipated crowd.
Veterans and friends, parents and the entire community is invited to celebrate. For more information contact PCSS at 876-4625.
