Students honor local veterans with program in Vergennes
VERGENNES — Champlain Valley Christian School students in Vergennes recently honored 26 veterans during the school’s sixth annual Veterans Day program on Friday, Nov. 9. The morning began with a breakfast served by volunteer parents, and was followed with student presentations that included songs and poems. Each veteran was presented with a certificate and a gift from the students to show the school’s appreciation for their sacrifice and time of service.
Those in attendance expressed their gratitude for the school’s efforts in taking the time to say thank you to those who served. Retired Lt. Col. Walter Kuehn Jr. expressed his thanks with these words: “The program you and the students presented to honor veterans was very professional and moving. Thank you so much for remembering some of us ‘older’ Americans. Great job. Best yet.”
