Veterans give thanks to FMHS

Opinion
Letter to the Editor

A great big THANK YOU to all who took part in and attended the “Holidays With The Veterans” assembly that was put on by the Student Government of Fort Madison Community High School on December 22, 2016. It was an honor for the Legion Honor Guard to be asked to post the Colors for the program! The program was very nice, and all Veterans were honored at the assembly. The speakers did a great job, as did the Honor Guard. The students on the Student Government Council had several fundraisers during the school year and raised $230.00 Dollars for Post 0082. They presented us with a symbolic ( huge ) check during the program, accepted by Commander Vice and myself. They will get the original to us at a later date. Our thanks also go to the Student Government Council, the Student Body, the Faculty, Band and Chorus of FMHS for the honor shown to Veterans.

Dan Vice, Commander
George Shields, Adjutant
