The Waverly Park Elementary School community honored their local Lynbrook veterans on Nov. 9 as they were invited to attend a special occasion.
In the school’s front lobby, students with veteran family members assembled a collage of pictures, facts and comments of pride for guests to view as they entered. Veterans were then greeted by applause from all students as they were escorted into the gymnasium and sat on the stage. Several students stood at the podium to share poems and messages of thanks. Veterans were also handed gifts, including crafts by students and flowers. Additionally, the chorus sang patriotic songs, such as “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America.” As the event concluded, veterans’ loved ones hurried onto the stage for a warm embrace.
