LTE: Principal invites community to FFMS Veteran’s Day celebrations

My name is Robert Lindsay and I serve as the principal of French Ford Middle School, a fifth and sixth grade school in Winnemucca.

The purpose of this correspondence is to both invite and inform you about our Veteran’s Day Assembly. This will be the fifth year that we have had this special observation of this day.

This year’s significance is no less – as this will be “11/11/11”. As you probably know your history of this day, originally Armistice Day, the cease fire for WWI was set for the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month in 1918 (hence 11/11/11).

Years later, this then  became Veteran’s Day through an Act of Congress.

Have something to say?
