Community Veterans Day Celebration Planned  For November 11 at Lake Geneva Middle School

Lake Geneva Middle School is inviting the community to attend its annual Veterans Day celebration on Monday, November 11, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. in the middle school gym.

The program will feature patriotic music performed by the school’s seventh and eighth grade orchestras, bands and combined choirs, directed by Mrs. Lauren Klement, Mrs. Amanda Krause, and Mrs. Kim May and accompanied by Mrs. Carol Berndt. A highlight of the event will be the combined performance of “God Bless America.” The audience will be invited to participate in a sing-along.

Colors will be posted by the Color Guard from Post 24 of The American Legion, located in Lake Geneva. Veterans who attend the program will be invited to “pass the microphone” to introduce themselves and announce when and where they served.

“We’re looking forward to honoring and celebrating our local heroes who have so bravely served our country,” said Anne Heck, school principal. “This program has been extremely rewarding to our students and the veterans,” she said. 

Following the assembly, community members, veterans, spouses of veterans, or widows of veterans are invited to attend a luncheon at 11:00 a.m. in the middle school cafeteria. Lunch will be prepared and served by eighth graders from Mrs. Tara Borland’s family and consumer science class.
