On November 7, a play will occur at 9:30 a.m. for grades 10, 11 and 12. The play, performed entirely by a single actor, tells the story of local Medal of Honor Recipient Gino Merli of Peckville, PA. Mr. Merli saved the lives of countless American soldiers by actions performed while manning a machine gun against attacking Nazi troops during World War II. A local playwright conducted interviews with Mr. Merli before his death in June 11, 2002. These interviews provided the substance to allow for the authentic portrayal of Gino’s heroic displays of bravery.
Finally, the school television station will also offer daily video presentations on the days approaching November 11.
The public is invited to attend the November 7 play, and especially any who have served in the Armed Forces. Veterans are encouraged to call 853-4921 ext. 2344 so that front-row seating can be arranged.
