On Thursday, November 10th, the Meadow Hill GEM School hosted its 16th Annual Veteran's Day Breakfast. Students, faculty, and staff welcomed Veterans from throughout the Newburgh community.

The NFA ROTC Color Guard, led by MSgt Granda presented the flag to officially begin the morning's festivities. Ms. Cadden’s 2nd grade class recited the Pledge of Allegiance followed by Principal Scott Prokosch's Words of Welcome. Students from the National Junior Honor Society then began to serve the special invited guests their celebratory breakfast.
