Bellows Falls Middle School Honors Veteran’s Day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA A special assembly was held on Monday at the Bellows Falls Middle School in honor of Veteran’s Day. The event was opened with a rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner”  by the middle school band, chorus, and 7th and 8th grade general music group. Guest speakers Richard Long (Social Studies teacher at Kurn Hattin) and Cheryl Gay-Sherwin, Air Force Veteran (Speech/Language Therapist at WNESU) spoke on the importance of honoring veterans, and of paying it forward by serving the community.

A special homage was paid to the Bellows Falls Union graduates who gave the last full measure of their devotion to their country in World War II – Raymond Metcalf (Class of 1933), Bertrand Roby (Class of 1936), Edward Naski (Class of 1937), Donald Shaugnessy (Class of 1937), Gordon Graham (Class of 1938), Robert Roby (Class of 1938), Anthony Lowkowgi (Class of 1939), Stephan Woynar (Class of 1939), Lloyd Fairbrother (Class of 1941), Raymond Massucco (Class of 1941), William Burrough, Jr (Class of 1943), Robert Huntoon (Class of 1943), Lawrence Gray (Class of 1944).

SUPPORT OUR NOVEMBER FOOD DRIVE

food_driveWe’ve kicked off our November food drive collection in support of Our Place Drop In Center, but we need YOUR help in order to beat last year’s numbers!! Last year, we collected 1,144 food items – we’d like to beat that goal and collect 1,150 items this November. On November 24th, the entire school will form a human chain between BFMS and Our Place to deliver our collected items. Support this effort by donating towards an important cause!

If we reach that goal, Mr. Gould will wear a wig each day!! The team (5/6 vs. 7/8) that collects the most items will get a chance to spend half a school day in the gym or watch a movie in the auditorium! Help us reach our goal and send in your cans and non-perishable food items TODAY!
