The Veterans Breakfast Program was opened by American Legion Post 197 Commander Carl Siemen who welcomed all Veterans and their guests and lead them in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. Acting Chaplain Bill Wells prayed for peace and for the well being of those serving on active duty and gave thanks for the food. A very delicious breakfast was served for all area veterans and their spouses or guests.
The breakfast meal was outstanding as usual. Dr Bishop thanked the Veterans for their service and recognized the Veteran organizations for the things they do in the community. Andi Bishop, a 5th grade student, sang an outstanding rendition of the National Anthem. Each Military Branch’s song was played with each branches’ Veterans standing while their song was played. A short video, compiled by media students, was shown honoring the Country’s Veterans. Chaplin Paul Ginther closed the ceremony with a prayer for peace and understanding.
