    • Mexico Elks veterans' essay contest

    • The Mexico Elks Lodge invited eighth grade students from Mexico Middle School, St. Brendan and Missouri Military Academy Middle School to enter the veterans’ essay contest. The topic this year was “What Do Veterans Mean to Me and My Freedom?” On Friday the winning students read their essays to the residents of the Missouri Veterans’ Home. The students were picked up at their schools in a limo and were escorted by Mexico Public Safety and the VFW to the veterans’ home. After reading their essays the students visited with the residents and ate lunch with them.
