Valentines for Veterans

On Saturday, February 11, 2017, during Family Night at the Davenport Elks Lodge, youth made valentines for Veterans residing at the Good Samaritan Society senior living communities.

With construction paper, stickers, doilies, markers, scissors and glue at their disposal, the kids chose a name from the list of Veterans and then got creative. With parents helping and even joining in at times, 25 inspired personal valentines were created. Once finished, the kids and their parents enjoyed dinner of mac ’n cheese, hot dogs, chips and drinks and then played games finishing off the evening.            

The valentines were personally delivered to the Veterans on Valentine’s Day by member Johnny Wright, PER and Iowa SE District Adopt-A-Veteran Program Chairman.
