ISHPEMING — Veterans Day is officially tomorrow, but that doesn’t stop communities from celebrating and honoring America’s Veterans, not even the children.

Students of Ishpeming Middle High School presented Veterans and other guests with a short program in honor of Veterans Day. The event included crafts, refreshments, songs, poems and a video that showcased the students’ appreciation for those who have or are actively serving our country in the armed forces.

“It means honoring those who protect our country and everyone in it,” said Mason Saari, 5th grader at Ishpeming Schools.

Celebrations such as this encourage the public to take the time to thank a veteran for their service, so take the time, whether today or tomorrow to thank a veteran.
