Stars, Veterans, HMVEEs, Miss Utah, and an amazing display of patriotism was demonstrated at Spanish Fork Junior High School today, Wednesday, November 10, 2010.

Since the beginning of November, students have been contributing red, white, and blue "Veteran's Stars" that are on display in the main foyer of the school.  Each star honors a family, friend, or neighbor who has served in the United States armed forces with names, pictures, dates of service, and branches of the military served.  Students were encouraged to bring their veterans with them to the assembly.

 the zonmbies of death—

the smell of decaying flesh

drives them to a craze


If you really think

That the undead are that bad,

Meet my family.

Ripping children to pieces

Blood was everywhere

a zombie has no conscience

they kill for pleasure

Shakespeare was an indescribable experience! We had an amazing time.

The ride up to Cedar City was three hours of non stop talking and laughing. When we arrived at the college campus we took a little tour then we were back on the bus and off to our hotel. We had stayed at a nice hotel called Holiday Inn Express.

 When we all got settled in our rooms, we got back on the bus to go to Tuachan to see Crazy for You. It was a musical filled with songs and laughs every few minutes. It was a beautiful night and the sky was clear and filled with stars.
