By Staff Report
Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

The Chartiers Valley School District will hold its annual Veterans Day flag-raising ceremony Nov. 11.

“Each year, we invite area veterans to come to the school for a flag-raising ceremony in their honor in front of the entire student body,” said Chuck McCartney, district director of public relations.

The ceremony, which begins at 10:10 a.m. at the high school entrance, includes the singing of patriotic songs by the chorus and the reading of the military records and accomplishments of some of the veterans. A military honor guard will raise the flag.

Veterans then are invited to stay for lunch and share their experiences with social studies classes.

• Carnegie American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars members are invited to the Nov. 11 borough council meeting to be recognized. The meeting is at 7 p.m. in council chambers.
