Lyme-Old Lyme Connecticut students honor veterans
By Kimberly Drelich Day staff writer
Old Lyme — Students dressed in red, white and blue performed
“America the Beautiful”
the armed forces salute in a tribute to veterans
Friday morning at Lyme-Old Lyme High School.
“The service members we honor today came from all walks of life, yet they share so many of the same qualities,”
high-school senior Matthew McCarthy
told attendees at the school assembly.
“They possess courage, pride, determination, selflessness and integrity:
all the qualities needed to serve a cause larger than oneself.”
The school’s Veterans Day assembly featured music by the Lyme-Old Lyme High School Band and Chorus, speeches, and applause for the more than 30 veterans in attendance.
