Branford High School (BHS) Horizons program students showed their appreciation for military veterans with a Nov. 7 fall clean up at Corcoran-Sundquist American Legion Post 83 Hall on North Main Street.
"We the veterans would like to thank them for their service," said Post 83 president Donald Langlois.
The fall spruce-up took place both inside the hall and outside and was especially appreciated as this year marks the 100th anniversary of the national American Legion organization, said Langlois.
In November, 2018, BHS Horizon students and staff also came by to conduct a fall clean-up at the building to show their appreciation for the men and women who have served.
Each year, BHS Horizons students, together with BHS Student Council, also show their appreciation for veterans by hosting the annual BHS Anthony "Bob" Bescher Veterans Appreciation Day program. This year, it will take place on Mon. Nov. 11 at the school.
Now in its 22nd year, the program gathers large group of local war veterans of historic conflicts stretching back to World War II as well as present-day military members. Members of American Legion Post 83, together with members of Branford VFW Post 12106, are always among the veterans participating in the day. A full school assembly greets the honored guests, followed by break-out sessions in small group presentations where students hear about first-hand experiences from military veterans.
