Just wanted to thank all of you who participated in the week long series of Veterans Day observances, from all the Seacoast schools to the Partridge House, and to the four services on November 11th.
Thank you to our guest speaker Lt Col Chris Nevins USAF who did an outstanding job at all four services. Thanks to our Post 35 Color Guard and Rifle Squad. Thanks to the WHS USMC JROTOC color guards and the instructors Mike Antonio and Bill Palino. Thanks to Troop 177 Scout color guard. The Brownie Troop at the Hampton Falls service. Thank you Chaplain Joe Kutt and past Chaplain John Holman. Thank you to Bugler Mark Weatherby and soloists Elaine Weatherby and Jessica Moriarty. Thank you Pastor Ken Lawrence from the Hampton Falls First Baptist Church. Thank you to Hampton PD and Hampton FD, and the North Hampton PD and Fire Department.
Thank you to all the 100’s of citizens who came out on November 11th, the men, the women, and all the children. There is so much love and respect from all of you. And we are all especially humbled, and thankful, for the many children who each year do a great job at all the schools. You are all so special.
Finally, a very special thank you to all the Veterans here on the seacoast. We are all a brotherhood who share one common thread. We love our country and our fellow veterans.
