On Thursday, Nov. 10, Cullowhee Valley School will continue its annual tradition of honoring local men and women who have served in our country’s armed forces. The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the school cafeteria, with breakfast provided for veterans and their spouses.
Following breakfast, a special Veterans Day program will begin at 9:30 in the school gym. American Legion Post 104 members will present the colors and demonstrate a flag folding ceremony used at funerals of area military veterans. Veterans currently teaching at Cullowhee Valley will provide reflections on their military service, and the school chorus will provide patriotic music throughout the program.
Guest speaker for the event will be Lt Colonel David Banks, USMC-Retired, a history teacher and coach at Smoky Mountain High School. All local veterans are invited to attend this special occasion, as Cullowhee Valley School expresses its gratitude for their service to our country.
