FLAG RAISING CEREMONY AT CENTERBROOK
And, Pepe' Jaillet.
When our children are grown, we forget how talented young children are. The program was announced by Graham Rider. The band played "You're A Grand Old Flag", the Pledge Of Allegiance was led by student Mitchell Conrad, the Star Spangled Banner was sung by Mrs. Deborah O'Donnell. Then the guest speaker, Cadet Mary Watson, one of many veterans participating in the day's activities, explained the importance of honoring vets to a mixed age audience. No small feat. The winning students shared refreshments with the Vets and got tips from them on what it means to serve in the armed forces. For more pictures, click on the album below:
Later in the day, we attended Jaime's softball game.
