A Veteran Appreciation Project will be held in conjunction with the 9/11 Day of Service in Iron Mountain on Tuesday, September 11th. Volunteers from the local RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program), high schools and Cub Scout Pack 510 will be showing our thanks and appreciation to area veterans. The group will meet to make hand-made thank you cards and will then personally distribute those along with fleece blankets and pillows to veterans at our local VA Hospital. Cards of appreciation will also be distributed to veterans at area nursing homes. For more information contact Kristin Sommerfeld at 906-774-2256 ext. 225.
