With patriotic symbols scattered around the cafeteria and the sweet smell of bacon in the air, veterans from the Hatboro-Horsham area showed up for the 15th annual KV Veterans Day Breakfast.
Middle school students experienced an informal history lesson as they ate breakfast with family members who served their country or continue to serve in the military. Student Ambassador Justin Kemp gained a better appreciation of those who served in the military by interacting with them at the breakfast. Kemp stated “it’s important that we learn about people who have been helping our country or who have helped our country. It is important to know what they have done.”
Assistant Principal John Ewerth hoped that the dozens of students who participated in the event “had a greater sense of what it means to serve your country and celebrate and honor those who have done so.”
Political leaders Tom Murt, Todd Stephens, and Maria Collett attended the breakfast and offered help to those veterans who are struggling. Also attending the breakfast were Hatboro-Horsham school district administrators Dr. Curtis Griffin and Dr. Monica Taylor.
Over 300 veterans attended this event that seems to be growing in size every year.
The KV Veterans Day Breakfast continues to be one of the most respected community events in the Hatboro-Horsham area.
