Veteran's Day Celebration at Van Buren

As part of celebrating Veterans Day, the Van Buren High School Public Speaking class is hosting an assembly to thank all Veterans for their service. 

The Van Buren Public Speaking class would like to invite all veterans and community members to join us on Thursday, November 10th, at 10:15 a.m. at the Van Buren High School gymnasium.  Please enter at the front of the building using the new doors near the gymnasium and school office. 

We would like our Veterans to please register inside of the front doors anytime after 9:45 a.m. 

We would also invite you to join us in collecting needed items for the Iowa City Veterans Administration. A few of the items that are needed are new clothing, $10 - $25 dollar gift cards, blankets, and signed greeting cards thanking the veterans for their service. Cash donations can be made with the donor choosing to allow us to purchase gift items or to donate the cash gift. For more information, please email Audrey.Ekle@van-burencsd.org.

A link to the list is as follows: http://www.iowacity.va.gov/Documents/VAVS_Needs_List.pdf

We will have cards available for signing at the program. These items can be dropped off at the Van Buren High School during the assembly or can be taken directly to the Veterans Administration Hospital in Iowa City. 

We will send out another message regarding the plans for our elementary school on Veterans Day.  

Thank you,
The Van Buren Community School District High School
