Members of the Lee’s Summit Veterans of Foreign Wars visited Richardson Elementary on Nov. 11. The veterans shared their stories of serving our country with sixth-graders.
In its 10th year, the visit from VFW members is a Richardson tradition and is a popular tradition with students and staff. A special guest for a number of years has been Clifford Mathis, a veteran of World War II. Students at Richardson honored Mr. Mathis with a card for his 99th birthday. Pictured are Mr. Mathis with his card and the group of visiting veterans.
