OHS Seniors to honor veterans

OROVILLE – The Oroville Class of 2013 will host a K-12 Veterans Day Assembly on Friday, Nov. 9 starting at 9 a.m at Coulton Auditorium.

The assembly will be about an hour and there is a special invitation to any member of the public that wishes to attend, according to OHS teacher George Thornton.

“Easiest entry is through the gym entry near the football field, but guests may want to come in through the front entry by the high school office because of parking. Just be here early so we can seat you,” Thornton said. “The Oroville American Legion will be special invited guests and participating in the ceremony.”
