Dear Covington Catholic High School Alumni Veterans and Families,
In appreciation of your service or your family member’s service to our country, we cordially invite you to attend our annual Veterans Commemoration ceremony. At this assembly, the entire Covington Catholic High School student body, along with the faculty and staff, will join you and your families to show our appreciation for the bravery displayed by members of the United States Armed Forces. We realize that this is a special day for you as well as your family. We would be honored if you would join us in remembering the members of our military.
The ceremony will be held in the Covington Catholic High School gymnasium at 1600 Dixie Highway, Park Hills, Kentucky, 41011. Though Veterans Day is actually on November 11, 2011, our ceremony will take place on December 7, 2011. The assembly will begin promptly at 9:30 A.M. and will conclude around 11:20 A.M. Please arrive by 9:15, however, as parking may be limited. After the ceremony, you and your family are also invited to have some light refreshments in the gym foyer.
We would like to once again express our boundless gratitude for all the courageous acts displayed by you or your loved one throughout the years. It is our hope that you look back on your experience at Covington Catholic High School with fondness, and since every Colonel is a part of our community, we would love to celebrate this day in your company. Though the magnitude of military service is often taken for granted, our nation’s observance of Veterans Day serves as a reminder that freedom comes from the sacrifice of courageous individuals like you or your family member.
If you are able to join us on December 7, 2011, please R.S.V.P. to Mrs. Diane Ruth by email at email@example.com indicating how many people, including yourself and your family and friends, will be attending. If you do not have an email address, please feel free to call the school at (859) 491-2247 and ask to leave a message on Mrs. Diane Ruth’s voicemail. Please reply no later than November 29th.
*Please feel free to wear your uniform on the day of the ceremony.
Mrs. Diane L. Ruth, National English Honor Society, and Journalism classes
