Clearwater social studies instructor Dan Roeber and Korean War veteran Louis Thiele display a quilt Thiele received during the school's program. Laurel Miller, science and math teacher, constructed the quilt. Each year, Roeber's government class presents information about a specific war and presents a quilt to a local veteran who served during that time period.

Veterans Day took on special significance, Monday, Nov. 11, as Summerland communities showed appreciation for veterans who have fought for and continue to defend our country's freedoms.

Veterans and American Legion Auxiliary members attended the events, which included guest speakers and patriotic music.

Students from Clearwater, Ewing and Orchard schools participated in programs at their respective schools.

In Clearwater, members of the American government class talked about the Korean War. Ewing elementary students sang songs. Orchard students learned proper flag-folding etiquette.
