When we undertook this project, the goal was to provide a Valentine’s Day card for each of the sixty-six residents of the long term care facility.  

As it progressed, we decided to include written notes to the vets with each card, hoping to make them more meaningful.  Thank you to the Elks members, and stampers who were able to fill out one or more of the inserts, as well as special thanks to Clearwater Fly Casters and our group of fly-casting vets for their participatioP1000395n.  

With donations of cards, and the Monday stamping night, we turned out over one hundred and forty cards rather than sixty-six.  This will allow the Veterans Home to distribute multiple cards to each vet.                                                                                                  

BradP1000389 Anderson delivered the cards to the home the week before Saint Valentines’s Day.

Thank you Brad.

 

We do care! — and we do share!
