The CHS Veterans Day convocation is a formal school assembly at which we recognize the contributions that our veterans have made and continue to make in order for us to live as free citizens. The convocation includes patriotic music and speeches, and we recognize a veteran with Carmel ties as a way of symbolically recognizing all veterans. Further, we recognize all veterans who are in attendance and provide a luncheon for them after the convocation. Please extend the an invitation to your membership and any other veterans they know who would be interested. It is critically important that our students see what sacrifice means by seeing the men and women who have made those sacrifices. Also, please have any veteran who is planning to attend email me at email@example.com so that we can plan appropriately for seating and for food after. The details are as follows:

Hi. Between the drought several years ago and the Emerald Ash Borer the IWM properties have taken a hit. Fortunately, we have great supporters such as the Indiana Hardwood Lumberman's Association, the Indiana Dept of Corrections, Purdue University, and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful who have done the heavy lifting to remove the dead/damaged trees and stumps while financing the new trees. Special thanks to the many volunteers who will assist with the planting on 1 November.
The next step is to maintain the new trees which require water bags to ensure they obtain the proper hydration. We would be very grateful if you would consider supporting our project to ensure our beautiful parks dedicated to honor our Veterans remain pristine. Additionally, please consider forwarding this request to anyone you think might be interested. Thank you.

I'm sure by now most of you have heard about Bud Moore being attacked and robbed in his home. Bud is one tough 94 year old WWII veteran. Here is a link to the story.
There was a fund raising Ride for Bud yesterday from Kokomo to the Eagles lodge in Cicero. There was a very large group of bikers which to me was amazing considering how cold it was, but there was also a large group of cars and trucks joining in for the ride. Knowing how hard it is to put together something like I must congratulate the planners of this event it went off without any problems.
I know there was a large number of you that wanted to help but couldn't make it to the ride so here is an address that you can send your donation to help Bud put his life back together

I had the pleasure to meet and speak with Bud yesterday.
?ON LES AURA! ~1916, “Courage we shall get them”, Original French World War 1 poster (31? x 47?) designed by Jules Abel Faivre (1867-1945) for subscription to the 2nd national defense war fund. This image became one of the most famous propaganda poster images of the great war and was so popular that it was retitled and reused for the second world was by the US Army. Abel Faivre earned more individual fame by his deigns than any other French poster artist during the war and this image above all became the visual patriotic mascot for the French.
Paul, I looked at the website and, for the first time, noticed the image of the poster that says "We have just begun to fight" it is a direct borrowing of a French poster from a WW 1 poster.
