On Monday, November 11, the 2019 Veterans Day celebration will begin at the Metcalfe County Middle School at 8 a.m. This will be followed by programs at the high school at 8:45 and the elementary school at 9:30. The Metcalfe County schools always provide enthusiastic, heart felt programs honoring our veterans. All our citizens are encouraged to attend.
VFW Post 6281 and American Legion Post 65 will conduct their Veterans Day program on the Edmonton old court house lawn, next to the Veterans Memorial, at the traditional 11 o’clock hour. The high school band will provide patriotic music. The program will include announcement of the seven veterans selected to receive a ‘Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild’ personalized handmade quilt. Please join us and help us to honor the many veterans who have so faithfully served our Country.
