Head Start and Early Head Start of Fayette County enrolled families were invited to a “Veterans Celebration” held at the Lemont Furnace Head Start center on November 9, 2023 from 4:30-6:30 PM. The event’s activities were in collaboration with PIC’s veteran’s programs.
Artwork filled the hallways that was made by all our HS/EHS of Fayette County enrolled children and families to display in appreciation of our veterans. Prior to the event, the HS/EHS staff and families made a Veteran Honor Wall that was displayed in the entry way of the office. Staff and families were able to provide pictures, names, ranks, and branches of service for their veteran friends and family members to be added to the wall display. The event started with the Pledge of Allegiance. A representative from PIC spoke about the AgVets and Veteran Employment Program grants to share information on how veterans are eligible, how to apply, and what opportunities are available through the programs. Veterans were given the opportunity to share funny stories about their time in the service. Children that were in attendance decorated cards to give to the veterans that were also in attendance. All that were in attendance were offered refreshments of slider sandwiches, chips, cookies, and a drink. 9 veterans that were in attendance were honored during opening and closing remarks.
In attendance were 8 families; 33 adults, 8 Head Start children, 5 Early Head Start children, and 12 siblings.
