HOMER-CENTER: Veterans honored; cast prepares for 'The Pajama Game'
HOMER CITY -- This past week, the Homer-Center School District honored all of the town's admirable veterans in a school assembly.
The school district has done this every year and it is always really nice to visually see those who have served us.
This annual assembly honors veterans through poems, readings and the presentation of certificates. Our guest speaker this year was Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Cosolla, of the United States Marine Corps.
Both the elementary and high school students attended the assembly, during which the choruses of the school district sang songs for our veterans.
This assembly is a tradition at Homer-Center and is one that is always enjoyable, considering that a lot of the students take part in preparing the event.
Also, within the assembly the American Legion Post #493 posts and retires the colors for an appropriate opening and closing.
We also heard the wonderful sound of taps played by Jon Stolarz and Ed D'Auerlio. Homer-Center always does a nice job celebrating the special day for all of those who have served, and we thank all of the students and staff that made the assembly a success.
It's also production week here at Homer-Center as actors and actresses practice for their performances this weekend. Don't forget to come watch our talented students perform the well-known musical "The Pajama Game."
The cast kicked off a preview of the musical this morning for all of the students and teachers in the school district. The cast will have two showtimes today, the first taking place at noon in the high school auditorium for all senior citizens.
Later on this evening, there will be a showing at 7 p.m. Admission for adults is $7 and is $5 for all students. If you can't seem to make a showing anytime today, there will be one last performance tomorrow at 7 p.m.
Well, that just about sums up all of the recent happenings at Homer-Center. We hope to see you at our production of "The Pajama Game." And since there is no column next week, here's wishing you and your family a happy Thanksgiving.
