Chartiers Valley School District, Carnegie Council to honor veterans
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.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
