Annual Veterans ceremony draws 9 WWII vets

 
 The 5th annual Veterans Day Celebration at Maple Point Middle School drew over 80 area veterans on Thursday November 10. That group included 9 World War II veterans, who were introduced individually at the start of the ceremony. All the veterans were also honored with a roll call.
 
The keynote speaker was Thomas M. Hauserman, Jr., USN, Commander of VFW Post 6393 in Yardley. The post is the main sponsor for the Bucks County Patriots Pen essay contest, which four Maple Point 8th-grade students entered this year.
 
 
 An Honor Guard from the post opened the ceremony, and the Maple Point Middle School Concert and Cadet Choirs provided music for the occasion. The Neshaminy Facilities department painted a large American flag on the hill outside the school, and like past years the 8th grade gathered around the flag along with many of the veterans for a group photo following the ceremony.
