Tribute to American Soldiers
City of Anderson and the Kikthawenund Chapter, NSDAR proudly present the rededication ceremony for the AHS World War I monument will be held on November 11th at 2:00 in the afternoon at Maplewood Cemetery.  We are all about getting students involved!  The AHS JROTC and Boy Scout Troop 301 from Anderson will be participating in the ceremony As part of the program, we will be recognizing all WWI Gold Star honorees from Madison County by reading their names, ringing a bell, and placing a flower on a wreath.  We are seeking and reaching out to relatives of the fallen to help with that process and the cadets and scouts will help fill in the gaps for those who do not have a representative.  Since the monument was presented to the school by the AHS Class of 1920, we thought it would be especially poignant if the Class of 2020 was represented as well.  The ceremony is open to the public and all are welcome as spectators as well.
