Veteran's Day in Powell WyomingNov 112011
This morning at 9:30 a.m., an assembly was held at the Powell High School to honor Veterans. My husband is a veteran and a member of the Powell Honor Guard. This morning when I walked into the school, doors were held open and I was greeted by students. At 9:30, Veterans from the community were individually escorted into the auditorium and seated in the front middle rows. The Powell High School band and choir were on stage. Several speakers spoke. The band played the military branch songs and members of each respective branch stood as their song was played. At that point, the Honor Guard went outside and that portion was shown on a drop down screen. The assembly was ended with the playing of Taps. Afterwards, in the common area, cookies and coffee was served to the Veterans and students came up to thank them for their service to their country. It certainly was a very moving ceremony. Thank you Powell High School.
