LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

Veterans Day is right around the corner. Long Beach Middle School got an early start to the celebration at its Annual Veterans Day Program.

The program recognizes current and former members of the military in the community and includes performances by the school band and choir.

A special part of this year’s program was the student council. They presented the Veterans Community Living Center in Biloxi a check for $1,700.

“We give it to them to raise money, so they can go places like to the movies and have fun and can just get out more often,” said Sophia Spears, a student council member.

After the program, there was a reception for the veterans and their families to enjoy.
