Don't forget about our troops

Since this weekend is Memorial Day, I wanted to remind everyone about our Cards for Soldiers Drive. I met Dotty Young, coordinator of the Connecticut effort, at CKC in in New Hampshire and she expressed her thanks for all those that have participated so far. I would like to send the next shipment off mid-June so the troops can get the package by Independence Day.

Cards for Soldiers Card Drive
A Statewide Effort Sponsored by your Local Stamp & Scrap Stores

Help our Soldiers communicate with loved ones back home. Create handmade cards that will be sent around the world so our Soldiers can pick up cards free of charge at their local military stores and send notes home.

Stamp on the outside of the cards, leaving the inside blank for special notes. Helpful themes include: Miss you, Anniversary, Happy Birthday, Children, Mother‘s/Father‘s Day and so on. Any age can participate! Submit in sets of 10 handmade cards/envelopes. Volunteers divide up the handmade cards so making ten of the same card is perfectly fine.
Drop off at The Inspiration Station.
Please call or stop in with questions!
Thank you in advance!

I think this is an excellent project for all ages. It is a wonderful way to say thank you to the men and women who are risking their lives for our freedom.
