CHS Veterans Day Program
Every year Carmel High School honors our local veterans with a program that includes patriotic music by a CHS orchestra and the school’s top choir, patriotic speeches by students, and recognition of a local veteran who speaks to the assembly, as well as recognition of all veterans in attendance. Further, we provide lunch for any veteran who attends. Any interested veterans, please let us know (email@example.com) if they are planning to attend so that we can plan for food. The ceremony this year will actually be on Veterans Day, November 11, at 10am. Parking will be reserved out front, and we encourage veterans to begin arriving at 9:40.
Audience: any veterans and community members
