Friday, November 9, 2012

Veterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11. However, most programs will be taking place Monday, Nov. 12.

To honor Clay County veterans, many organizations have scheduled several events.

The following is a list of upcoming events in honor of Veterans Day:

* The Northview High School and Cumberland Academy's Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) program will host its second free Veterans Appreciation Luncheon for all veterans as well as families and friends of veterans Sunday, Nov. 11, from 2:30-4:30 p.m., at the Brazil National Guard Armory, 970 W. Craig Ave., Brazil.

The meal will consist of a choice of hamburger or hot dog, chips and baked beans.

Desserts will also be available to choose from.

For more information, call Northview JAG faculty advisor Michael Robison at 812-239-3769,

* Local veterans are welcome to a special Veterans Day breakfast Monday, Nov. 12, from 8:45-9:30 a.m., in the Clay City Elementary School cafeteria. The school's hallways will be decorated.

Veterans, family members and community members are then welcome to attend a Veterans Day program at Clay City Jr./Sr. High School, beginning at 10 a.m., in the gymnasium. Students will honor and acknowledge military accomplishments of veterans during the program,

* Van Buren Elementary School will host a Veterans Day program Monday, Nov. 12, at the school.

Veterans who have served at any branch of the United States Armed forces are welcome to attend the ceremony, which will feature the Jackson Township Community Band.

The event is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.

Veterans and spouses are invited from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., for a luncheon, and

* At 10 a.m., Monday, the Jackson Township Community Band will perform inside the Clay County Courthouse during the annual salute by the American Legion and V.F.W. posts.

The event is the band's oldest continuous musical event, first played at the courthouse upon learning of the German surrender ending World War I in 1918.

A medley of World War I songs, featuring "Over There," by George M. Cohan, will be highlighted along with patriotic marches.

So proud of the Northview JAG kids, it was great to see this generation showing such respect and courtesy. I am confident this is the generation to make a change!
