A Community Celebrating Veterans

thank-you-veteransWhat better way is there to celebrate and thank our Veterans than to join in a community event featuring them? Once again this year, the students and staff of M.S.A.D. 4 are planning a gala celebration in honor of and appreciation for our Veterans on Monday, November 10 2014 at Piscataquis Community Secondary School in Guilford starting at 1:00 p.m. sharp. This long-standing tradition just gets better every year!

Veteran’s will be greeted by a receiving line of third graders and the program will be facilitated by members of the PCSS National Honor Society. There will be lots of music, including several stirring numbers by the combined PCSS Band and Chorus under the direction of Band Leader Mr. Carey. The Marine Corps League will again this year serve as honor guard. This year’s event is truly “multi-media” and will include a live “Skype” session with Elaine Riitano, a 2013 PCSS graduate who is currently serving our country.

The regular feature of the Armed Forces Theme Song Salute gives us a visual reminder of our community’s contribution to our country as people stand to acknowledge their connection to each branch of service, hearts swelling with pride and lumps in the throat.

The multi-media aspect is being taken to the maximum and the event will be “live-streamed” thanks to technology. Those who are truly unable to attend can watch events unfold on the SAD 4 website.  In fact, Legion Halls and assisted living centers to might consider making the program available this way.

But if possible, join your friends and neighbors for an hour of celebrating our freedom and those who make it possible while supporting our very talented kids. See you in the gym!
