Thanks to the efforts of local students, Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon’s 4th annual Valentines for Veterans program was a great success. Thousands of cards were delivered to local veterans and active members of the military to thank them for their service.

 

“The Valentines for Veterans program is a great community event. The students are truly engaged and are thrilled to take part in this project to honor our veterans and active members of the military,” said Legislator Dixon. “It’s a tremendous honor to meet with local veterans in South Buffalo, Lackawanna, Blasdell and Hamburg to deliver the cards and personally thank them for their service.”

 

Legislator Dixon, along with her youngest children, delivered cards to local veterans on Valentine’s Day. They visited American Legion Posts and VFW Halls throughout the district. Also receiving cards this year were the VA Hospital, Vets HERD organization and Veterans One-Stop Center.

 

 

The following schools participated in the 2014 Valentines for Veterans program:

 

  • Big Tree Elementary School
  • Cloverbank Elementary School
  • Discovery School
  • Global Concepts Charter School
  • Lorraine Elementary School
  • Old Time Baptist Academy
  • Our Lady of Victory School
  • St. Mary of the Lake School

 

 

“Throughout the year we should take the time to honor and thank our veterans, and this is just another opportunity to remind them their sacrifice is appreciated. I again want to thank the schools and students for their hard work and beautiful handmade cards, and of course thank our military personnel for their dedication and service to our country,” said Legislator Dixon.
