Strasburg Parks & Rec and Hemphill Middle School are partnering to make valentines for veterans and soldiers that are currently serving. Our military heroes often find themselves alone or feeling homesick during holidays. The Soldiers’ Angels mission is to make sure no one who serves this country feels unloved, especially on Valentine’s Day. Cardmaking supplies will be available at the Rec, beginning January 1 – cards must be returned for distribution by February 1.  If you know a Veteran or current Soldier that would like to receive a Valentine – please email their mailing address to: jessica@strasburgparks.org.; DEADLINE 2/1/24
