Walorski to speak at Veterans Day celebration

By Rob Burgess - rburgess@wabashplaindealer.com

Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Indiana, will deliver remarks at the Veterans Day program set for 11 a.m. Monday on the north lawn of the Wabash County Courthouse.

These services are open to the public and are being conducted by the veterans’ organizations of Wabash County and their associated auxiliaries.

The event was first announced Oct. 24 by Steve Daugherty, Wabash County veterans service officer. The addition of Walorski’s appearance was announced Thursday.

Wabash Middle School to attend

Wabash Middle School (WMS) will be in session Monday, and the student body is planning to head down to the event at 10:30 a.m.

“We just go down to support it,” said Christie Douglass Hodson of WMS, In a phone interview Thursday. “We went a few years ago.”

Hodson said it was dependent on the weather, though.

“If it ends up raining, or if the weather gets really bad, we won’t. Because we don’t have transportation. We would do an in-house program of some sort,” she said. “We’re just taking time out of our day to make sure the kids understand what that day means.”
