Butler Elementary School honored local Veterans on Friday, February 3rd with a Valentines for Veterans tribute. The students and staff worked together to honor service men and women through the Our Community Salutes (OCS) of Bucks and Montgomery counties project. Our Community Salutes is a national, non-profit organization helping communities recognize, honor, and support high school seniors who plan to enlist into the U. S. Armed Services after graduation. Several service men and women from OCS and Veterans of Chalfont’s VFW Post 3258 joined Butler as the students wrote letters, cards, and created pictures to send to our troops.
Two students were recognized by the Chalfont VFW Post on this special day with the Patriot's Pen award: Anne Marie Nwatuobi and Rishi Suresh read their award-winning essays on patriotism to the assembly.
