 Veterans Day 2017 Recognition Ceremony

Hopewell-Loudon Local School has supported local military families & veterans for many years.  Our Veteran's Day celebration which began as a small ceremony has morphed into a multi-tiered day of celebrating the service and sacrifice that relatives of H-L have made.  We accepted donations and collected funds to ship over 60 boxes to soldiers supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom & Operation Enduring freedom.

We also support local nursing homes to check on veteran residency. The caregivers and veterans create personalized wish lists for each veteran.  Students in grades K-12 were invited to donate for veterans and their personalized requests.
