Lawrence-Nelson Schools show respect for Veterans
November 18, 2021
Music . . .
Patriotic Displays . . .
Speeches (of sorts) . . .
Thank You letters . . .
Education . . .
A little bit of all the above was the hallmark of the 2021 Veterans Day programs at the L-N Public Schools Thursday, Nov. 11.
One hundred and three years ago at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, the end of WWI was officially declared.
In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson declared November 11 as 'Armistice Day' and it was declared a National Holiday in 1938. After World War II and the Korean conflict, the name was changed to Veterans Day.
