TONASKET – Local veterans turned out for the Tonasket High School Veteran’s Day Assembly Nov. 9. About a dozen veterans attended the morning event, with a packed house of middle and high school students, community members and other visitors.
Several local veterans were honored during the assembly for their service, and some chose to speak. They were later presented with roses by students.
On Oct. 26 the Hickenbottom family was presented with the Legacy Family of the Year Award by the Western Washington University Alumni Association. Adding to the honor is the fact that this is the first time the association has given such an award. The Hickenbottoms were chosen by their peers in the WWU Alumni Association to be “distinguished and deserving of recognition at the highest level.”
