Honoring Grandpa

Mitchell Egan, a student in Mrs. Fortuna’s first-grade class at Sunrise Elementary in North Branch, and his mother Renee spent time researching family members who have served the country to pay special tribute to them at the school’s Nov. 8 Veterans Day program. The tribute: a shirt with a listing of their names. Listed at the top was Mitchell’s special guest of honor at the program, Grandpa Rick Hals, an Army veteran and member of the North Branch American Legion. “This little boy is so proud to be wearing this shirt today and excited to be sharing this program event for the second year with his Grandpa Rick,” Renee said.
