The staff and kids at Old Mission Peninsula School (OMPS) recently honored veterans at a Veteran’s Day ceremony in the school gym. More than 20 veterans were escorted into the gym by their kids, grandkids and friends, as their military background was read by Debra Hartley.

OMPS students sang songs, read poems, and asked questions of the veterans during a Q&A time at the end of the ceremony. One veteran noted that during all of his years in service and beyond, this is the first school program he’s ever been asked to participate in.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
