Evansville High School will host its annual Veterans Day ceremony at 9 a.m. Friday in the high school gym, 640 S. Fifth St. Local veterans and families are invited to attend as the students and staff offer a honest thank you to the courageous men and women who selflessly served our country to help shape it into the great nation it is today.

WILLARD, Ohio- It is one thing to say to a veteran, 'Thank you for your service, ' but it's another thing to actually show them just what that service means to your community. This invitation was accepted by more than 35 community veterans. "This year's guest speaker is U.S. Marine Corps". A flag raising will be held at 6 p.m., followed by special singers, singing patriotic songs. The second-grade class put on the program and sang in the choir instead of the older students, and the program was held at night instead of during the school day. The guest speaker will be Bill Longmore, US Army Specialist.

Veterans Day is recognized nationwide, but southeast Iowa's schools are not only recognizing the day, but celebrating it with the heroes themselves.

American Legion Post 40 will host a Veterans Day Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 11 at the Cut Bank Moose Lodge in Cut Bank. Veterans and their spouses will be treated to a homemade breakfast and a program of music and recitations in their honor given by the student body.

"After the ceremony we will serve lunch to the veterans".
