DETROIT LAKES, MN--In a week, on Veterans' Day, Detroit Lakes High School invites local veterans to join them for breakfast as they salute the military men and women who have served our country. Social Studies Teacher Kalan Malchow says there are a number of veterans on staff with the school district and the celebration started several years ago with social studies teachers coming together wanting to do more than show a two-minute video on Veterans Day. Now, every two years, local veterans come for breakfast and an assembly in the gym recognizing veterans from each military branch. Malchow says then a number of veterans,who volunteer ahead of time, share stories of their service in classrooms through the morning.

Malchow invites all veterans to the celebration next Monday morning, November 11th at the High School. If you are a veteran, or you know a veteran, who would like to attend the breakfast and assembly next week, call Social Studies teacher Rob Ullyott at the High School 218-847-4491 ext 2229 or email him at rullyott@detlakes.k12.mn.us
