The Putnam County school district’s Veterans Day program is set for the morning of November 11th at 9 o’clock in the high school gymnasium at Unionville where veterans and their families are to be honored.
The school says veteran, Colonel Larry Sanders, will speak with the colors presented by members of the local American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Treyton Riediger and Payne Pfeiffer will drape the prisoners of war/missing in action flag, and the audience will be led in singing the national anthem by Dalice McDannald.
The Putnam County high school band will play the armed forces march, a medley featuring the theme song from each branch of the military. Veterans will be asked to stand and salute during their theme song.
Fifth-grade students will present their old glory project to a special loved one. The framed flag is the culmination of a character education project in which each student chooses a character trait and writes a short essay. The high school band is to play, the Grand Old Flag as the project Is handed out.
The Putnam County high school choir is to perform God Bless the USA, and a Patriotic Festival.
Third-grade students will sing, This Land is Your Land prior to the playing of Taps to close the program.
The annual assembly is organized by the National Honor Society at Putnam County.
The public is invited to the program with the school district noting there will be ample seating for veterans and family members on the gymnasium floor.
