LUSK – Niobrara County schools have always honored veterans for their service with a lunch and all-school program. This year, the schools wanted to make sure veterans knew they were not forgotten in spite of the fact that major celebrations and programs were not possible due to COVID-19.
Students and staff worked hard to assemble over 60 thank you gift baskets. The baskets were the result of student, staff and community donations. They were decorated and contained thank you notes from students of Lusk Elementary School.
LEMS coordinated with the Niobrara Senior Center to deliver some of the thank you gifts to those veterans that receive meals from the senior center. Other veterans were able to pick their baskets up from the senior center parking lot.
