Veterans, active service personnel wanted

By on November 3, 2010

Kaneland—On Thursday, Nov. 11, Kaneland John Stewart Elementary School will hold a Veterans Day celebration near the flagpole at 8:55 a.m. and at an afternoon assembly at 2:45 p.m.

During the event, area Boy Scouts will raise the colors, and veterans will speak. In addition, Kaneland Harter Middle School will present the Morning Brass Ensemble, a collection of Kaneland School District students who will perform patriotic songs led by director Dan Zielinski.

Kaneland is seeking veterans who are available that day to go to classrooms to do a short-question-and-answer period. The district is also inviting veterans to join them at the end of the day for the assembly.

If you are a veteran or are in active service, please contact Bonnie Whildin at (630) 365-8170, ext. 119, or via e-mail at
