I was honored to be asked to emcee the Salute to Veterans on Nov. 9 at Berney Elementary.
Principal Donna Painter. music teacher Elizabeth Arebalos-Jagelski and all the Berney staff put on one of -- if not the most -- impressive salute to veterans programs I have ever attended.
The amount of practice and rehearsal of the songs had to be tremendous. The kids did an exceptional job and put their hearts, souls, energy and enthusiasm into every song and poem. It was truly heartwarming watching our future generation giving it their all to honor the veterans.
It was nice to see that patriotism is alive and well at Berney.
