YOUR PHOTOS: West Towson Patriots and Defenders Assembly

Check out our photos from West Towson Elementary's annual civics assembly, and share your own.

On Friday, hosted its annual Patriots and Defenders assembly.

The assembly is the capstone of the six-week Patriots and Defenders program for the school's fourth and fifth graders.

In addition to memorizing the preamble to the U.S. Constitution and other civic lessons, students were also asked to submit essays and posters based on President John F. Kennedy's famous quote: "Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country."

West Towson students and staff were joined by County Councilman David Marks, state Sen. Jim Brochin, Del. Bill Frank, and the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Here are some photos from the assembly. I saw plenty of parents there—Share your photos with us!

Essay winners: Ally Gaddy, Abi Simmons, Caitlin Kristoff

Poster winners: Reed Spaulding, Mia Smith, Kayla Vosburg, Chloe Simpson, Angelica Jameson, Journey Gianna

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel." - Samuel Johnson, April 7, 1775 "I couldn't help but say to Mr. Gorbachev, just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another planet. We'd find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together." - Ronald Reagan, 1985 "Patriotic societies seem to think that the way to educate school children in a democracy is to stage bigger and better flag-saluting." - S.I. Hayakawa

It was truly inspirational to listen to these young people talk about the events and values that made this country the greatest country in the world. I was honored to present the “Patriots” with a United Sates flag and the “Defenders” a Maryland flag. For God and Country, The American Legion Towson Post #22, Inc. Jim Rebbert Commander
