State Street Elementary School Honors Veterans
SKANEATELES, NY (November 9, 2017) – Students at State Street Elementary School gathered on Thursday morning in recognition of Veteran’s Day, honoring three local Skaneateles veterans.
Colonel Bill Conole of the US Army, Lieutenant Commander Ron Bourque of the US Navy, and Lieutenant Colonel Dan Bangs of the US Air Force joined State Street Elementary students and faculty for their Veteran’s Day assembly.
All three veterans were welcomed into the State Street Elementary auditorium by a student led procession of the American flag before the group recited the Pledge of Allegiance.
Mrs. Nancy Fortais then directed the State Street fourth grade class as they sang a pair of songs honoring veterans before a slideshow was presented to the tune of Lee Greenwood’s, God Bless the USA.
“We thank our three local veterans for being with us this morning,” said Casler-Goncalves. “It is because of these three gentleman, and all of our veterans, that we have the freedoms we have every day.”
