ROXBURY, N.J. - It's been a week of Americana for the pupils at Roxbury's Lincoln-Roosevelt School, with Tuesday's presidential election sandwiched between Monday's mock election and Wednesday's "Veterans Day" activity. 
The latter involved inviting about 20 veterans to the school where they were interviewed by students and were treated to lunch and musical performances. 
"This is something we normally don’t do," said Lincoln-Roosevelt School Assistant Principal Chris Argenziano. He said the theme of the Veterans Day event, combined with Monday's mock election was "patriotism, country, the importance of the election and honoring our service men and women." 
The Veterans Day idea came from the school's acting principal, Bud Beavers, an accomplished musician who joined in the music making as well as a demonstration of jitterbug dancing with Roxbury schools graduate Elaine (Smith) Stevenson. 
After the veterans were served lunch and interviewed by students, they were entertained by the school choir and teacher-musicians as well as by famed pianist Rio Clemente, Grammy Award nominated saxophonist John Kurdilla, Roxbury High School graduate and drummer Michael Fasino and Port Morris pianist Jack Amato. 
"Everybody was very thrilled with it," Argenziano said. "They loved it. It was really a nice show. There was a lot of music played … It was a very special day."
