Here are upcoming Veterans Day events in the town of Chewelah.
Gess Elementary would like to thank area veterans by honoring them and their spouses with a breakfast and an assembly on Thursday, November 10, at 8:45 a.m. Following breakfast in the staff room, veterans and their guests will be ushered to the Gess gymnasium where they will be celebrated by students and staff. The assembly will commence at 9:30 a.m.
The local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be coordinating the presentation of the colors, followed by a selection of patriotic music sung by the Gess choir. Next, first grade students will be performing a routine for the audience. All branches of the military will be recognized and awards will be given to the winners of the VFW essay contest.
Once again, all area veterans and their spouses are invited and encouraged to attend this honorary event at Gess Elementary. We appreciate your service and sacrifice!
