This is the image for the news article titled Dresden Middle Plans on Recognizing Veterans with Drive-By Care PackagesAll area Veterans are invited to take part in Dresden Middle School’s Veterans Day program on Wednesday, November 11, at 8:30 a.m. Due to COVID-19 precautions, the program will be in the form of a parade around the school grounds.

Beginning at 8:15 a.m., all veterans will enter the Linden Street school entrance to line up their vehicles. A student carrying a sign with the veteran's info will escort the vehicle. Veterans will receive care package items from homeroom classes as they make their way around the loop.

School administration asks that veterans pre-register in order to help the students learn and communicate more prior to and during the festivities. Participants do not have to be Dresden residents or connected to Dresden students. All veterans are welcome.

All veterans will remain in their cars and receive recognitions as they follow the route in front of the school.
Homerooms will be creating posters and elements for the care packages.

Local businesses may contact the school if they would like to donate something to add to care packages or would like to promote activities they are planning for Veterans Day.

To pre-register, veterans should provide name, hometown, branch of service, years of service, title, and primary location of service.

Several options are offered to deliver the information to the school:
• Send it with a student
• Call the school at (731) 364-2407
• Email it to Jamie.Rickman@wcsk12tn.net
• Mail it to: Dresden Middle School, 759 Linden Street, Suite A, Dresden, TN 38225
• Drop it off at the school – ring the doorbell and someone will collect it.
