Superintendent, Pat Trice was honored to represent VSDB with the Staunton-Augusta Lions Club in the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington, Va on August 23, 2019.
The Lions Club is a service organization and although they help others in the community, they are mandated by their charter to serve the Deaf and the Blind.
Their mission is reflected in their motto, “We Serve”. The Staunton-Augusta Lions Club sponsors the VSDB Leo Club which provides students an opportunity to serve others. The attached video, shows the laying of the wreath ceremony. There is absolute quiet during the ceremony. The only words spoken are at the beginning are when the guard announces the start of the ceremony and instructs people that total silence is expected during the ceremony and that at the appropriate time, people are to place their hand over their heart while the bugle plays taps.
