Normandy Elementary honors veterans

More than 70 Veterans honored at Normandy Elementary
Normandy Elementary School in Bay Village honored more than 70 area veterans on Veteran's Day this month. Students in Kindergarten, first and second grade read tributes to those who have sacrificed for the freedom of people in the United States and around the world. They sang patriotic songs, and then they held a parade, led by the Bay High School Marching Band.

The next day, Superintendent Jodie Hausmann received the following email message from a Bay Village resident, Sherri Reilly.

"I just wanted to share a quick story," wrote Reilly. "Yesterday, I was getting gas in Westlake, and an elderly man approached the car next to mine. He wore a Veteran's hat, and I thanked him for his service. I asked him where he served, and he said he served in the Korean War. I said, 'God Bless you,' and his eyes teared up. He said his daughter asked him to go to Bay Village that day to be in front of children to be honored with 74 other veterans. The impact of your presentation was far reaching, and deeply warmed my heart!" Reilly wanted those responsible to know how much it touched her and the veteran she met.

We cannot thank our Veterans enough for their service. Normandy Elementary thanks them in the most heartfelt and amazing way!
