American Legion Post Partners with Frisco High Fine Art to Honor Veterans
The Frisco High School band, choir and orchestra partnered with the American Legion Post 178 Color Guard in a memorable Veterans Day tribute to honor local area veterans earlier this month. The program honored and listed the names of the 11 young people who lived in Frisco who were killed in action since World War I. Each is honored at the Veterans Memorial in Frisco Commons with a plaque at the Wall of Honor, as well as a trail marker describing their service.
The 11th soldier honored was Corporal Peter John Courcy, U.S. Army – Operation Enduring Freedom, who was killed in action on February 10, 2009, in Afghanistan. He was 22 years old. Because Peter had attended Frisco High School, a special tribute honored him.
Community Parade a Success Thanks to Partners
Securing trailers was difficult this year for the parade due to the chronic shortage of truck drivers. The District and the City are thankful for those who were able to provide trailers for yet another fantastic parade! This includes RPMx Excavation, Frisco Wholesale Lumber, the City of Frisco and EarthtechUSA.
