WWR NEPA was one of the many groups invited along with veterans and active military by the Pleasant Valley Elementary School to participate in a Veterans Day indoor parade and flag line.

We lined front and rear entrances to welcome students as bag pipes and drums played patriotic songs.  Once school was in session, all the students lined the hallways and recited the Pledge Of Allegiance and sang our National Anthem.

Then the procession of flags, veterans and brass band and drums paraded through the student lined hallways while getting high fives and hand made thank you notes.  At the end of the parade everyone was serenaded by the 3rd grade choir while enjoying light refreshments and delicious goodies.

To see those young faces in total awe shake hands with our veterans and our veterans feel the appreciation and respect was the highlight of the day
