2019 Veterans Day Observance held


These vets—and Lakeside alum—attended the Veterans Day event held on Wed. Nov. 6.

Lakeside Lutheran High School hosted a Veterans Day event Wednesday, November 6, that featured an introduction to and speech from State Senator Scott Fitzgerald.

Eighty-six guests spent the morning at Lakeside. The veterans in attendance represented more than half a century of military service, from World War II to the conflicts and wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan. After a breakfast and social time for veterans and their guests, Principal James Grasby greeted the veterans and introduced Senator Fitzgerald, who served in the U.S. Army Reserve for 27 years.  Fitzgerald expressed his thanks to the veterans in attendance and to those currently serving. Addressing the students before chapel, he encouraged them to consider serving their country through the military.

A special Veterans Day chapel service, presided over by Pastor Tony Schultz, from St. Luke, Watertown, and Pastor Mark Toepel of the Lakeside faculty, included the honored veterans as well the entire student assembly, faculty and staff.
