NOVEMBER 11, IS VETERANS DAY. Yes, a day to honor our veterans of all wars, who fought for us through the years since 1776, because we did not like the English rule. Since then we have had many wars, and they are still happening, luckily not in America. But our service men and women are sent to fight overseas, all for the cause to keep Americans save.

Our thanks to the Lyons High School and other bands of the St. Vrain District who participated in the Veterans Day Parade in Longmont on Monday.
