Mountain Grove Pubic Schools held a Veterans Day Celebration program on 10 November, 2017. The Mtn Grove VFW was privileged to be involved in the program. Sr-Vice CDR Dodds represented the post by awarding the Patriots Pen and Voice of Democracy awards to the Mtn Grove students. Due to the low number of entries in the past the Voice of Democracy program this year was combined with all schools competing together. Norwood had the top two places and Mtn Grove received the third place. It was an early program and began at 9:00 a.m. The photos below tell just part of the story.
