The Whitehall and Cardwell Schools are hosting their annual Veterans Day program next week.

The Whitehall program is scheduled for Monday, November 11 at 10 a.m. in Varsity Gym, while the Cardwell program is scheduled for 1 p.m. in the gymnasium.

Whitehall Musical Director Janet Heilig discussed the importance of the event for both students and staff.

"It is wonderful for us all to get to see the Veterans in our community and to recognize them. I know it is always a time of reflection as names on the roll pass by. Students enjoy giving to the community and are proud that we have Veterans to recognize here, not just in far-off places," Heilig said.

While the students have a variety of performances and programs throughout the school year, Heilig said this one is very different.

"Its focus is on others besides themselves. What a great message of unselfishness we can spread," she said.

The schools would like to invite the community to attend and also for residents who would like to add a new name to the roll call to fill out and return the form on page 19 of this week's Ledger.

There will be additional forms available at both school offices.


School musical director Kyla Simon said the theme of the program is "Sacrifices Made", adding they will have cookies, coffee, and juice for those in attendance.

"We always look forward to the Veteran's Day Program because it gives the students a chance to not only learn about the cost of our freedom and the history of it, but it also gives the students the chance to meet the Veterans and thank them in person for their service. It is always a special day and we are proud to present for the Veterans and the community," Simon said.
