What's Going On:
Lake Central celebrated Veterans Day in a very patriotic fashion. On Thursday November 9 Lake Central invited veterans from all across the area to attend a special breakfast and assembly. Breakfast was served for an hour and over 200 veterans attended. Students who knew a veteran were dismissed early from class to join their veterans at the breakfast. Once breakfast had concluded students from the remainder of the building were dismissed and sent to the main gym where they eagerly awaited for the veterans to arrive.
