Corry hosts Veterans Day drive-through event

Corry hosts Veterans Day drive-through event

Reagan White, Reporter

On November 11, the Corry Area Middle High School will be hosting a Veterans Day drive-through at 10:30-11 a.m. in the front drive at the High School to acknowledge and thank the veterans in the Corry community for their service.

In preparation for this event, social studies department chairman Mr. Woods teaches his students about American traditions and veteran roles.

While the history department normally hosts a breakfast or has a speaker come to the school, due to the pandemic, this is the safest way to carry out this annual tradition.

All the veterans in Corry are welcome and encouraged to join. Students and staff will be lining the front of the school to cheer, wave, and share thanks with veterans for their service in a socially-distanced manner. The veterans who attend will drive through the horseshoe in front of the school and they will be rewarded with a thank you letter and a donut.

It is important to remember this will only be outside and no one will be allowed in the building.

A message to veterans: please enter from the western-most entrance on E. Pleasant St, near Summer St. It is not required to RSVP, but it is a great way to help staff and students prepare for this event. Call CASD and let them know so the students can prepare the gifts.
