Northborough – Lincoln Street Elementary School held its annual Veterans Day ceremony Nov. 8 in the school cafeteria. Students in grades Kindergarten through fifth grade honored veterans with patriotic songs and a presentation on the history of Veterans Day. Parents and grandparents of students in the military were introduced and thanked for their service. In addition to the assembly, students have donated their Halloween candy to Operation Gratitude, an organization that sends care packages to the troops.
