The Newaygo Middle School National Jr. Honor Society with adviser Jaime Harkness celebrated Armed Forces Day on Friday, May 20th. Veterans from the community were invited for donuts and coffee while NJHS students presented the history of Armed Forces Day and information about special people in their lives who are Veterans.
Veterans won prizes such as an American Flag, Branches of the Military Flags, and patriotic decorations! To end the ceremony, the Croton American Legion Honor Guard led the Veterans through the middle school while all students placed their hands over their hearts to display respect.
Newaygo High School and former NJHS member, Iris Herrera sang the National Anthem outside as we all honored the men and women who served our country.
Thank you to the Croton American Legion, Newaygo Food Service and Maintenance, Officer Rood, Iris Herrera, and Wesco for helping us with this special event!
