The faculty and students of Etna Elementary School in Newark, Ohio recently honored and thanked members of VVA Chapter 55.
For 16 years, the school has held the event for local service men and women and veterans. The school held a breakfast for the veterans and an assembly program with special recitations, patriotic music, and other performances by the students.
Veterans in attendance went home with hand-colored American flags, a program booklet, and handwritten notes of appreciation.
Chapter 55 returned the favor, naming Etna Elementary School a ‘School of the Year’ with a commemorative plaque.
