Dinner delivered to veterans 

TREMONT  The Parent Teacher Organization is honoring the town’s veterans this year in a new way. 

In non-pandemic years, veterans were invited to Tremont Consolidated School to visit with students, join them for lunch and be honored in a ceremony. Visitors are currently not allowed into the school, so the PTO has decided to honor veterans by delivering meals to them.  

If you are a veteran, or if you know a veteran, who resides in Tremont, and would like to receive a thankyou dinner, email Ashley Stanley at [email protected] 

Those wanting to help with the meal preparation and/or delivery should contact her at that email address. 

The PTO is also looking for veterans who would like to tell their stories in an interview with a student, and those interested in setting up an interview can also email Stanley.
