Middletown Area Middle School ready for annual Veterans Day event

Posted

Middletown Area Middle School will again be the focal point of area Veterans Day activities, when the school hosts its annual Veterans Day program on Friday, Nov. 10.

The event begins with a continental breakfast from 8 to 9 a.m. provided for all veterans in the school cafeteria.

Then, veterans and others will head down to the school auditorium for the Veterans Day program from 9 to 10 a.m.

Registration to attend is not necessary. As soon as visitors enter the campus, they will be guided by parking attendants and then students who greet and guide them.

The theme of this year’s program is “A Tribute to the Flag” and the guest speaker is Ron Hostetler, who is an author, artisan, and corporate and conference speaker working in the education, training, and personal development industry.

Middletown Area Middle School has been holding an annual Veterans Day event every year since 1994, when the tradition was started at the school.

The event has grown over the years to where about 250 veterans attended last year. 

Many of the veterans arrive wearing the uniform of their service, and are accompanied by a Middletown Area Middle School student who is their family member or friend.

The school’s Veterans Day program is sponsored by American Legion Post 594, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1620, Middletown Moose Lodge 410, Middletown Anglers and Hunters, and the Middletown Area Middle School National Junior Honor Society.

The school is located at 215 Oberlin Road. For directions, call 717-930-0739.
