This week, Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon visited VFW posts, the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, and other veterans’ organizations to deliver cards collected through the annual ‘Valentines for Veterans program.’
The cards were made by students from Blasdell Elementary School, Southside Elementary School, Hillery Park Elementary School #27, Lorraine Elementary, Discovery School #67, Armor Elementary School, Big Tree Elementary School, Charlotte Avenue Elementary, Cloverbank Elementary School, Old Time Baptist Academy, St. Peter and Paul School, Union Pleasant Elementary School, Pinehurst Elementary School, Southtowns Catholic School, Martin Road Elementary School, Our Lady of Victory School, Global Concepts Charter school, and Truman Elementary School. Legislator Dixon visited the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station Thursday afternoon to deliver the valentines.
Legislator Lynne Dixon said, “It was great to visit the Airbase and deliver Valentines that students throughout our community put so much thought and effort into. Everyone who participated did an outstanding job. This annual program is a small gesture to show the men and women who serve or have served our country how much we appreciate them.”
Master Sgt. Brandy Fowler, 107th Attack Wing Public Affairs Superintendent said, “Valentines for Vets is something we look forward to every year. There are so many smiles on the Airmen’s faces when they see the Valentines and it really brightens the day for our members. Our Airmen are constantly striving to be the best at their jobs in order to deliver combat airpower and remain successful in carrying out our missions critical to the defense of our nation and allies. So this is a great change of pace. It’s heartwarming to see how much time and effort these kids put into making our valentine’s day special.”
