Prekindergarten teacher Bernice Richards holds Manny Ramirez, 4, as they listen to keynote speaker David Miller, president of the Pinellas County Veterans Liaison Council, at the Cross Bayou Elementary Veterans Day celebration Friday in Pinellas Park. The school started the event as a way to teach children about why we celebrate Veterans Day. This year's celebration included local public figures, veterans from the hospice next door and a color guard from Dixie Hollins High School.
