TIONESTA, Pa. — West Forest School is hosting a Veterans’ Ceremony on Thursday, November 8.

Every year, the United States of America celebrates America’s veterans on November 11. This date was selected due to the First World War officially ending on this day. What had been called “the war to end all wars” concluded on the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month. Congress declared this day Armistice Day on May 13, 1938. However, this was changed on June 1, 1954, to Veterans Day.

West Forest will be hosting Forest County veterans on Thursday, November 8, of this year.

Students will be thanking veterans for their sacrifice which allows us to enjoy our freedoms on a daily basis.

The ceremony will begin at 1:00 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. Following the ceremony, individual pupils will have the ability to thank our veterans personally. Immediately after the ceremony, there will be a reception in the Museum room.

All veterans and their families are welcome to attend.

West Forest School is located at 22318 Route 62, Tionesta, Pa.
