At Waupun Area Junior/Senior High School, we have a class called senior democratic seminar. The main purpose of this class is to get out in the community and try to improve it.
We split into groups and my group members were Morgan Brown, Haley Scholten, Conner Kamphuis, Treylen Richter and Quintin Winterfeldt. We started this project in September and we wanted to honor the veterans for Veterans Day.
We presented our idea to the veterans at an American Legion meeting and they liked the idea. For the banners, we wanted the names of local veterans. We used their names, ranks and where they served.
We first presented the finished banners to the veterans at the Veterans Breakfast ran by Waupun FFA. We hung the banners outside City Hall on Nov. 9 with the help of Jeff Daane.
Veterans who weren’t on the first banners will be included on the next ones. Slips to sign up will be located at the American Legion, or text me at 920-344-0072. Please include the veteran's name, rank and where he/she served. Family members who would like to honor their loved veteran can also fill out a slip or text the information.
