Calling all vets: Oakfield-Alabama schoolchildren want to honor YOU
Submitted by Billie Owens on October 14, 2013 - 1:20pm
The Oakfield-Alabama Middle/High School faculty, students and administration would like to extend an invitation to all veterans in the area to attend a Veteran’s Day Celebration ceremony at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8, in the High School Gymnasium. The school is located at 7001 Lewiston Road in Oakfield.
We will be honoring the veterans with music by the band and chorus. Each veteran will be asked to complete a short biography form so that he/she may be introduced to the audience. The veterans will spend some time sharing with the students, and be given lunch prepared by our students.
The afternoon will include spending time in the Elementary school where another celebration prepared by the elementary students will take place.
If you are interested in attending, please contact Patricia Trinder at 948-5211, ext. 4502, or at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and telephone number so that we may mail the forms to you. We look forward to seeing many of our area veterans and hope you will enjoy our program.
