North Dickinson students thanked for cards for vets

Bouquets and Barbs


From Lynne Wilson, American Red Cross volunteer coordinator:

I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the fourth- and fifth-grade students in Vicki Johnson’s and Michael Lindholm’s classes at North Dickinson County School for the beautiful, handmade Christmas cards for the Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

Each year, your local Red Cross volunteers deliver the cards made by area students to our veterans in the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center and area nursing homes. This year, the dedicated volunteers gave out 100 cards to the delight of the veterans.

Thanks to the students and to the wonderful volunteers who donate their time to help area residents in need.
