OHS Castleton Students Honor Veterans

In a moving ceremony on Schoolhouse Green, OHS Castleton students paid tribute to the veterans who secure our freedom and in particular they honored local veteran Fred Morse. Mr. Morse served in WWII, Korea and during the Cuban Missile Crisis of the early 1960s. Local elected officials and a representative from the governnor’s office also participated.

Once the speeches and tributes had been made, two School #6 students presented Mr. Morse with flowers and then Castleton students raised the flag. Members of the American Legion, Jewish War Veterans and VFW were present as well.

Tomorrow the OHS Patriots Club will attend a 10:30 am ceremony hosted by the local veterans groups on the grounds of OHS. School  #8 also paid tribute to veterans today with a special assembly.
