Veterans breakfast at Lizana Elementary
Veterans Day was Saturday, but that does not mean that celebrations have ended.
Lizana Elementary School in Gulfport wanted to carry on the salute to the veterans who have paid the ultimate price and so they hosted a veterans breakfast early this morning.
Although the students and teachers at the school have paid tribute to veterans the past eight years with a special lunch, this is the first time they have hosted a breakfast.
The faculty and staff donated money and food to make sure that the breakfast was as special as it could be for the people in attendance. Principal Patsy Brewer said, “Well it’s a community thing. Our school is very community oriented. We always try to do things like this. Like I said, we have had this for eight years. We are very community oriented here. We have always done lunch and we were very happy to see this many come out.”
School officials say they hope to make this an annual event.
