NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Youngsters from New Hartford took part in an early Veterans Day celebration on Friday as all veterans were honored at Myles Elementary School.

As part of the celebration, parents or grandparents who served were invited and honored.

"Our intention is two-fold," said Myles Elementary School Principal Cindy Langone. "To make sure our students understand the purpose of Veteran's Day, what a veteran does, the sacrifices they make for us and also to honor the veterans that are a part of the Myles Elementary School family."

The school is also holding a food drive for the local "Feed our Vets" program.

Students and their parents will continue to donate non-perishable food items through next Friday.
