Veterans from the Cromwell and Wright area enjoy visiting with each other after a Veterans Day service at the school.

Our current high school exchange student from Italy, Lisa, was selected to play flute in the 52nd annual High School Honor Band at the University of Minnesota Duluth last Friday and Saturday. Lisa was one of more than 250 students chosen from more than 50 schools all over the state. She was placed in the top ensemble and earned first chair honors through an audition process held with UMD music faculty. It was a wonderful performance Saturday afternoon, following only two short days of rehearsing together. Way to make Cromwell-Wright school proud.

The veterans of the Cromwell Wright area were shown the utmost love and respect on Veterans Day Monday, Nov. 11 at both the Villa Vista and the Cromwell-Wright School.

The veterans at Villa Vista/Cardinal Court and from the community were honored with a wonderful program sponsored by the facility. The program started with the high school choir singing the National Anthem, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance; then the choir sang two very meaningful patriotic songs. Each veteran was asked to share their military experiences and give advice to members of the senior class, who were also in attendance. It's amazing how diverse their experiences were, going all the way back to several veterans from World War II.

The veterans were invited to the program at the Cromwell-Wright School that afternoon. They filed into the gym and got a standing ovation! Every student from the school was in attendance, along with more than 45 veterans, their families, the school staff and many community members. The choir sang, the band played and the students participated with songs, poems and readings.

There's lots going on this month.
