Honor Our Guardians of Liberty

by Sara Vogt - November 12, 2014

Yesterday morning we enjoyed watching children honor our veterans during a Veterans Day Service at the Don Gill Elementary School. Principal Steve Adams opened the event by explaining Armistice Day and how it became a legal federal holiday called Veterans Day. It all started when the 4th grade class sang the National Anthem. Then Mr. Adams introduced fourteen veterans and they each shared about their military service. The guest veterans were James Mack, Henry Topf, Dr. Bair, Luc Pecynski, Teddy Whitten, Frank Levindoski, Eddie Calhan, Roger Bunn, Gene Clark, Ed Wilson, Stanley Pargells, Tim Cleveland, Eldon Cummings and Robert Spencer. Music teacher Mrs. Mark Simmonis once again led the second and third graders as they sang ‘There Are Many Flags’ and ‘America the Beautiful.’ Col. Eldon Cummings was the keynote speaker. He asked the students what they believed a veteran was and received many wonderful answers.

The observance of Veterans Day continued with a service on the Green at 11:00am. An invocation for the service was demonstrated by Calvin Cobb, Chaplain of the VFW Post 4907. The Wellsboro Men Chorus performed a number of patriotic songs for the service. Master Sergeant Clare R. Emery spoke about three women veterans from World War 2 (including Emma Shaw, who attended the event). Sergeant Emery reflected on the day and its meaning and the honoring of all veterans who have helped to protect our country. The service ended with the Tioga County Honor Guard presenting a rifle salute followed by taps played by Stanley Parsells.

Wellsboro Home Page and our family of advertisers want to thank all of our veterans for their service, courage and sacrifice.
