Hartford Union High School hosts drive-thru Veteran's Day breakfast

HARTFORD, Wis. (CBS 58) --- The Hartford Union High School Student Council hosted a drive-thru Veterans Day Breakfast Wednesday morning, Nov. 11.

24 veterans attended the event where the members of the Student council packaged breakfasts, made thank you cards, and handed out breakfasts to the veterans and their families. 

"I'm grateful because this is the third year we have been doing this and with all that is going on with Covid, I'm thankful we were still able to find a way to show our support and appreciation to the veterans in our community," Charlotte Skibinski, senior and Student Council charity committee chair, said. 

Jessa Bea, senior and Student Council special events committee chair, said she hopes her predecessors continue the special tradition and that they will be able to do it in person.

"I helped take over the first Veterans Day breakfast three years ago and it was something I really enjoyed doing," Bea said. "I always love talking with the veterans and their families in our community. It allows me to thank them personally. I appreciate everything they have done and continue to do for us."

Student Council advisor Holly Oleshko said the students were determined to do something for the veterans this year, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"Every year we host a fantastic breakfast prepared by the HUHS culinary students. The members of the Student Council were disappointed that they couldn't hold it this year," Oleshko said. "Disappointed, but determined to do something."

The students also put together a video of the veterans. To watch the video, click here
