On Friday, November 9 at 9am at St. Ann church, the Saint Ann School community paid tribute to those who have sacrificed so much to serve our nation. We held a special ceremony for veterans that included our choir singing patriotic songs, a band student played Taps, a student flag folding ceremony, and patriotic paper wreaths were on display with names of veterans in our community being remembered. We recognized and thanked veterans in attendance and presented them with a special gift of appreciation. Naples Mayor Bill Barnett joined us for mass and the ceremony. In keeping with the mission of Wreaths Across America, our school vows to always “Remember our fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve, and teach our children the value of freedom.” Following the ceremony, students processed singing “You’re a Grand Old Flag”, and each planted their own flag around the church.
