Happy Fourth of July!!
I hope you are having a great day celebrating the birthday of our country. When I think about Independence Day, I’m reminded of all the veterans who have sacrificed for our freedom.
I recently gave stamped birdhouses to all my stamping friends, and they colored them and returned them to me. We are now making them into Welcome cards for the veterans who are moving into the new Veterans Center near Fort Knox. It’s a brand new nursing home, and they currently have 8 residents, but will have 120 once they’ve passed all the inspections.
This is the second group of cards we’ve made. You can see the first group here.
A few people and businesses were kind enough to donate money to purchase slipper socks (you know, the ones with the rubber grips on the bottom) to be given to the new residents. Another friend, Nancy, donated white boxes leftover from a project at her church, and we packaged the socks and decorated the boxes. Didn’t they turn out nice?
And, here’s a picture of Janet, who helped me package and decorate this group of socks!! We delivered them to the VA Center Wednesday.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your holiday! And, if you see a Veteran, thank them for their service. It means so much to them.
