SPRING MILLS-Family is important at Spring Mills Middle School and in the surrounding community.

Liberty High School students will be participating in a Veterans Day program at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the high school, 1 Leopard Way.

Aurora resident Dick Bieth, a U.S. Army veteran of nine years, said he thinks efforts to celebrate Veterans Day in recent years have been ramped up.

"We've got parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles".

This is the third year in a row Staley students have done this, and the number of kids taking part grows every year.

Brown Funeral Home and United Bank were this year's sponsors for the Veterans Day reception and assembly, according to Melonas.

"Today is really a day about honoring the wide variety of men and women who served our country", Webb said.

Veterans Day activities are planned on a number of Cleburne ISD campuses, with area veterans, or those now serving, invited to attend.

The children showed they had been learning some basic skills by presenting an enthusiastic rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance. The event included crafts, refreshments, songs, poems and a video that showcased the students' appreciation for those who have or are actively serving our country in the armed forces.

Students have also created profiles of veterans - those special to them or those from history - which are on display throughout the school.
