Members of the Elks were joined by the local “Stampers with Attitude” and other guests on Monday, February 6th to prepare Valentines for residents of the Lewiston Veterans Home as part of the National Salute to Veterans.
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 participation.
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.
Thank you Brad.
