Dorchester Vets Day Program & Supper, Nov. 11
The public is invited to honor our nation's veterans at the annual American Legion Veterans Day Program on Tuesday, Nov. 11, at the Dorchester School at 10 a.m.
The guest speaker will be Rio Beranek, who serves in the Nebraska Air Guard. The Junior Axiliary will also take part.
A soup, sandwich and dessert supper will be held at the Legion from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. This event is to honor our area veterans. The supper will be a free-will donation event.
On another note, the District II "Americanism" speech contest will be held Nov. 15 at the Dorchester Legion Hall at 9 a.m. Students can still take part if they would like to show their patriotism.
The speech topic is on the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote nearly 100 years ago. Grades 6-8 can read their speech, while grades 9-12 are asked to memorize their presentations. Call Bob Kasl at (402) 946-6851 for more. Monetary awards and participation prizes will be given.
