Liberty School District Veterans Day Community Assembly

Liberty School District and Liberty Elementary School are located adjacent to Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma, which the Royal Canadian Legion, US Branch #25 helps to maintain.  This year the leadership of Liberty School District and Liberty Elementary School invited members of the branch to join them at their annual Veterans Day assembly.

The program consisted of patriotic songs and some presentations by the 208 students and approximately four dozen staff members, and then all Veterans were invited to stay for a lunch provided by our parent group.  Additionally, there were between 175 and 225 veterans and family members – as well as members of the community – at the assembly.

Note that we have attempted to blur the faces of the students.

Finally, our branch was on hand to distribute poppies to the veterans, staff, family, and community members – and poppy stickers for the students.

Recognizing all who have served

An item from the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation organization.

Dear Friend,

Today we recognize all who have served in the Armed Forces.  

People of all ages across the nation will honor our veterans in meaningful ways — flying the American flag, asking a veteran about their experience, attending a community Veteran’s Day event, or visiting the gravesite of a fallen veteran.

We join you in thanking and honoring all of those who have served.



The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation honors those who have served our country. Thanks to the generosity of private, public, and corporate sponsors, the Foundation works with local organizers and volunteers to place roses and other flowers on gravesites at National, Veterans, and Local cemeteries across the United States.
