Principal Juanita Wright along with Frances K. Sweet Elementary (FKS) students and staff invite veterans to the 9th Annual Veterans Day Celebration slated for Friday, November 3, 2017. This time-honored celebration of distinguished service men and women is held on the school’s campus located at 1400 Avenue Q in Fort Pierce. Event organizers Helena Grapsy, Tammy Davis, and Barbara Bennett encourage veterans interested in participating in the ceremony to meet ten minutes prior to the 9 AM kick-off in order to line up for a parade of appreciation that will wind through the FKS campus.
The JROTC cadets from Fort Pierce Westwood High School will open the ceremony with the presentation of colors followed by remarks from a special guest speaker. After the ceremony, there will be a campus tour of patriotic-themed displays. Honored guests will then enjoy a special breakfast prepared by FKS’s cafeteria staff.
