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 firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can plan appropriately for seating and for food after. The details are as follows:

Hey folks we have talked to Dick Cole and all is well so it's almost time for the once in a life time event. We will be depositing your checks on Monday and the tickets will go out in the mail on Monday and Tuesday (there is over 200 plus envelopes to address and stuff). You should have your tickets by Thursday or Friday at the latest.
The committee does have a great program lined up just in case something falls thru, if we don't use it now we will probably do it at a future meeting.
Dick Cole will be signing items after the program is over and he does ask for a $5.00 donation for the Doolittle Scholarship Fund to do this. If you don't have anything for him to sign the tickets that we will be sending you is worthy of being signed and framed.
There is a very small group of you that has called and asked for us to hold tickets for you that we have not received your checks yet just a FYI no check no ticket
Here is message from Don Born
Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is a personal plea to all to look through your belongings (junk) to see if you can find one or two items that you would donate to the Doolittle 'Silent Auction'. We are in need of additional items, if we are going to make this auction monetarily successful. Also please contact other people in your respective organization to donate an item. There will be a Planning Committee meeting next Tuesday at 5 pm, MCL at Castleton, please bring the items with you, if not call me to arrange a pick up. Please guess a retail value for each items.
Please pass around, Thank you.
INDY HONOR FLIGHT
Indy Honor Flight will complete a flight of 70 World War II Veterans and guardians back from Washington, DC for them to see their World War II Memorial on Saturday, October 18th
The Welcome Home Celebration will take place at the Plainfield High School Gym 1 Red Pride Drive Plainfield, IN 46168 P: 3178397711. The turnout of people to welcome them back at the Indianapolis Airport was so large, in the 3 to 4 thousand range and very loud; the airport can not handle the crowds any longer. bringing tears to many of the veteran’s eyes.
We encourage everyone to come to the Plainfield High School between 8:00 PM and 8:30 PM and see the Gordon Pipers lead the veteran’s through the line, through the hallway into the gym, and, of course, the “Kissing Girls” will be there to plant a great big smooch on both cheeks of each veteran as they make their way along the line…the women veterans will be presented with beautiful bouquets.
So come on out Saturday, October 18th to help welcome these veterans home and make their flight an even more memorable one. If you do, I guarantee you that it is an experience you won’t soon forget.
