Kudos to Burgess Elementary

I received an invitation to attend a veterans program at the Burgess Elementary School, where they would be presenting me with a check for the Veterans Welcome Home and Resource Center. I was not aware that I was in for such an amazing performance. Principal Donna Hooks had assigned music teacher Valerie Herstatt to prepare a program to honor veterans. I believe they both must have been drill sergeants in a previous life because the children performed like a well-trained drill team without missing a cue during the two one-hour programs. Songs were song, notes were read, and presentations made all nicely done with no hesitations. It was one of the best salutes to veterans I have ever seen and all I could do when it was my turn to speak was say “Wow!” then render a salute.
