MASON CITY – On November 10, 2017, students at Lincoln Intermediate will be celebrating Veterans Day by having an assembly honoring those who have served in our military during war-time and peace-time. The assembly, which starts at 2:00 PM is open to any community members and their spouses that have served in the military. A special invitation is extended to parents, grandparents and siblings of our Lincoln Intermediate student body and staff. Lincoln Intermediate just asks that if you plan to attend, please contact the school office so that we can be have adequate seating. Family members that wish to attend may either sit with their child, or sit in chairs in the reserved seating section on the Lincoln Intermediate gymnasium floor.
The assembly will feature a special speaker, Eldon Vine. He will be sharing a theme of “How can children show patriotism”. The entire student body will be singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America”. A video will be presented that will describe the origins of Veterans Day, and our central theme will center on our 5th president, James Monroe and the 200th anniversary of his presidential inauguration. The conclusion of the assembly will feature a rifle salute given by members of our own Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and taps performed by our Lincoln Intermediate trumpet players.
