50 vets enjoy breakfast

Annual event at Ada schools

By Monty Siekerman
Fifty veterans attended the annual Veterans Day breakfast at the Ada Schools on Friday. School Superintendent Meri Skilliter spoke, thanking the military men and women for their service, sacrifice, and dedication.


Dave Lusk organized the event again this year. The football players served as hosts.

Bob Hubbell had paid the cost of the breakfast for many years, but since he passed away in the last year, his daughter and son-in-law Patty and Dave Devier graciously agreed to financially support the breakfast this year.

The room was decorated in red, white, and blue. American flags were in abundance. The students made greeting cards for all of the tables. The cards expressed the youths' appreciation to the vets and honored them for keeping America free.
