Veterans past and present were recently honored with a special breakfast and performances by Panther Run Elementary School’s fifth graders. On Nov. 8, the school celebrated veterans who are parents, grandparents, relatives and family friends of students and faculty, including the school’s resource officer and former Wellington Mayor Tom Wenham. The children sang songs, read poems and told the story of the nation’s holiday to an audience of nearly two dozen veterans.
