Area veterans will be honored at an assembly at 9 a.m. this Friday, Nov. 9, at the Gravette High School Performing Arts Center. Sponsored by the Gravette High School Student Council, the annual event will be preceded by a reception at 8:30 in the high school commons honoring veterans and their families. The all-high-school gathering will include showing a video of interviews with local vets and a history of Veterans Day, which is officially observed on Sunday, Nov. 11, the day which World War I officially ended in 1918. Originally called Armistice Day, it was later expanded to honor all veterans.
