The National History Club, a recently formed organization at the Glenwood City High School, will be coordinating this year’s Glenwood City Community Veterans Day Program to be held at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, November 11 in the high school gymnasium.

The program will include a welcome by school administration, the presentation of Colors, the National Anthem played by the Glenwood City High School band, Veterans Day speeches, a video presentation entitled “What Do You Think Veterans Day Means?”, remarks by area veterans and the folding of the United States Flag.

Members of Glenwood City’s Curry-Ainsworth American Legion Post #168, Downing’s Winterling American Legion Post #232, Emerald’s American Legion Post #404 and Wilson’s Matson-Miller American Legion Post #330 are expected to be attendance and serve as the program’s color guard.


The Boyceville School District traditionally holds a pair of Veterans Day Programs on Wednesday, November 11 – one in the morning at the high school and the other at Tiffany Creek Elementary School in the afternoon.

This year’s programming will again include a pair of ceremonies.

The Boyceville Middle School and High School Program will begin at 10:40 a.m. in the Gymatorium and will feature the students performing in the bands and choir, student speakers and original student speeches. Members of Boyceville’s Harmon-Harris American Legion Post #314 will serve as the color guard.

Students in the middle school and high school are also penning essays about Veterans Day.

“We look forward to sharing our talents to honor the men and women that have sacrificed so much to serve our country!”, said Diane Vig, Boyceville MS/HS band and instrumental music instructor and one of the organizers of the high school program.

The Tiffany Creek Elementary will host its annual Veterans Day program at 1:30 p.m. in the TCE gymnasium.

TCE staff and students host and recognize members from Connorsville’s AMVETS Post #72 as well as other area veterans.

Grade school students have a variety of activities planned for this year’s celebration including several musical numbers and patriotic songs, speeches and a demonstration. The program will conclude with a moment of silence and a 21-gun salute followed by the playing of Taps.
