Coastline Christian Academy to Salute Veterans with Patriotic Parade

Students, faculty and families will march in Goleta on Thursday in honor of service men and women

Bring your flag and cheer on the children, faculty, family and friends of Coastline Christian Academy in Goleta as it celebrates Veterans Day with a patriotic parade at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11.

The parade will leave the school campus at 5950 Cathedral Oaks Road near Fairview Avenue, march down Cathedral Oaks Road for several blocks, then wind back to Coastline Christian Academy.

Expect a sea of red, white and blue as the students from kindergarten through eighth grade display their gratitude for our servicemen and women with flags, streamers, balloons, decorated wagons and other patriotic projects they’ve been creating in class. Many family and friends who will be attending are active or retired military, and have been encouraged to come in full-dress uniform.

“I was proud to help lead the parade last year,” said 85-year-old Franklin Hazen, a former Merchant Marine who served in the South Pacific during World War II. “It was both a joy and a hope for the children of future generations.”

While most schools are closed to observe Veterans Day, Coastline Christian Principal Mary Osgood said she sees this school event as an opportunity to teach the students about the great sacrifices and efforts of individual Americans.

“We love to be with the students on Veterans Day so we can jointly honor family and friends who have served our country,” she said. “What a great learning opportunity!”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
