Veterans assembly this Friday

Public is invited to annual recognition of area vets


Jo Ayers, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, is honored at the 2017 Veterans Day Assembly, similar to the one offered to the public this coming Friday.

The annual veterans assembly at Lake Roosevelt Schools will be held this Friday at the gym in Coulee Dam.

Changing things up from previous years, the event will be split into two segments: one for kindergarten through sixth-grade students, and another for seventh through twelfth grades, with an intermission in between.

"Veterans and public are welcome to join us for either or both," said teacher Sandy Hood, who organizes the event and felt that one assembly with the full student body was a bit too long for some of those in attendance.

The first segment of the assembly starts at 9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 9 in the Lake Roosevelt gymnasium in Coulee Dam. That part will include elementary choir performances, as well as an honor song from a native drumming group.

At 9:45 a.m. there will be a 15-minute intermission, and at 10 a.m. things get rolling again with junior/senior high school choir performances, introductions of veterans, and an open mic.

Seventh- and eighth-grade students wrote over 200 letters to local veterans inviting them to the event, Hood said.
