Friday was a big day for the fourth-graders at King-Murphy Elementary.
They hosted a Veterans Day celebration for the school, and that included welcoming about a dozen veterans to a coffee-and-doughnut reception before the school-wide assembly.
The students, some dressed in suits and party dresses, were well-prepared to engage the veterans in conversation between young and old.
Questions about the vets’ service included: How was the food? What was your job? What was your favorite memory? Do you still keep in touch with people you served with?
