American Legion Continues Valentine's Tradition

Posted: Updated:

Local community members gathered around the table today to work on Valentines Day cards that will be sent to Veterans.

For the past 10 to 15 years, Valentines for Veterans has been an annual project of the Minot American Legion Auxiliary. So far, 200 cards have been made by volunteers and school children.

"The vets in the nursing home, it's just so very important for them. They really think that it's wonderful that a school kid would take the time to make them a valentine. Some of these vets, especially in Fargo and Lisbon, don't see a lot of family, so any little thing that makes them feel special is worth it," says American Legion Veterans Chair Carol Crabbe.

The deadline for creating Valentines for Veterans cards is January 28. If you'd like to get involved, you can contact Carol Crabbe at 701-839-8591.
