DEDHAM, Maine (WABI) - A big "thank you" was sent out to veterans by kids in Dedham Friday morning.

The Dedham School held its third annual Veterans Day celebration.

Local vets were invited to the event as students performed songs, poems, stories, and more.

Some of the kids wore special clothing for the occasion.

"I want them to know that we appreciate them," said Musical Director, Michelle Briggs. "We appreciate what they have done. They are not forgotten. They are a big part of our community, our hearts, and we want them to know that we love them."

Certificates were given out to each veteran.

They were invited to speak to the students, too.
