Annual program honors scores of veterans

The 20th annual Veterans' Appreciation Luncheon and Program hosted by Lyon County Schools recognized scores of local and area military veterans Friday with a meal and ceremony presented by fourth-graders. More than 350 veterans and their families were in attendance for the service, which has grown from only 11 veterans who gathered in former teacher Terrie White's classroom in 2000.
