CHS to host Veteran’s Day event

The annual Veteran’s Day program will take place on Monday, Nov. 12 in the Central High School gym at 10 a.m.

Frank Presfield, the senior vice commander for the Minnesota VFW, will be the featured speaker at the event, and Ron Smith will serve as the emcee.

The program will include performances by choir students from grades K-12, who will sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” and the 7-12 Grade Men Chorus will sing “Tell My Father.”

In addition, eighth grade winner of the Patriot’s Pen essay contest Olivia Hendel will read her composition, and senior Tom Messner will speak about his experiences at Boys State.

The public is invited to the event, which is taking place on Nov. 12 since Veteran’s Day falls on a Sunday this year.
