Our Veterans Day event is always special, and this year was no different. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to recognize and honor the men and women who have served, and are currently serving, our country. Several of our guests stopped in classrooms after the assemblies to personally speak to our students about their experiences. If you haven’t seen the slideshow presented at the assembly, you can view it here.

We would like to recognize our key supporters that helped make the day possible:

– Jade Buckler, speaker and BFA father

– Mason MacDonald, MC and demonstration leader

– Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 1106

– Douglas County Sheriff’s k9 Unit

– Andy Michaud, played the bagpipes

– Mark Stallins, trumpeter

– Kelly Enders and her team at Starbucks

– Jamie Johnson, taught students the military anthems

– Heather Kimball, created the video

– Students in National Junior Honor Society

– CEC lead Nikki Busto and all our amazing volunteers

Through your generosity, the Community Events Committee (CEC) collected more than 630 items to donate to veterans at the VA hospital! The donations, whether big or small, will have a positive impact for the veterans who receive them. Thank you, BFA Community!
