10 a.m. - Fort Calhoun Community Schools' community Veterans Day program, Fort Calhoun High School main gym, Friday. Local veterans and families are invited to attend as the students and staff offer a honest thank you to the fearless men and women who selflessly served our country to help shape it into the great nation it is today.

"Every year we honor all local veterans with a special ceremony and the band and choir will be performing and there will also be a guest speaker", said Sprenkel.

But the best present these veterans received is the chance to see just how much their community cares. The dinner runs from 5 to 7 p.m., and the Jack Farina Big Band will perform music for dancing from 7 to 10 p.m.

Specialist Mitch McCoy, who spent eight years in the Army National Guard, including a 2008-09 tour in Afghanistan in Operation Enduring Freedom, will give a talk.

The Lake Geneva Joint School District is hosting a Veterans Day service at 9:30 a.m. Friday at Lake Geneva Middle School, 208 E. South St.

MENDOTA - The Mendota Veterans Day program will be in Veterans Park, downtown Mendota at 10:45 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11.

Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont schools will hold similar celebrations on Wednesday and Thursday with more than 40 veterans planning to attend.

Refreshments will be served in the lobby before and after the assembly.

All of the local schools want to help recognize, celebrate and honor all of local veterans and thank them for their service.

This is the first year for the Veterans Day Blizzard Ride, 9:30 a.m.to 2 p.m.

Lahlum said students make American flag artwork that line the hallways and are always eager to hug and high-five the veterans as they leave the stage.

UW-Whitewater will host a series of events and services for Veterans Day, highlighted by a Veterans Day ceremony Friday and a veterans and military appreciation football game Saturday.

Earlier that day, the Elementary School will begin its day with a Leadership Breakfast, in which students will invite the important veterans in their lives to enjoy muffins, coffee and juice. A moment of silence and words of dedication will be offered to honor the American soldiers killed in West Africa.
