State Representative Lindsay Parkhurst (R – Kankakee) continued the “Valentines for Veterans” program launched two years ago. She invites students and other interested citizens to participate in making handmade valentine greetings with well-wishes to our veterans who served our country with pride.
“I started this program in 2017 to ensure our veterans are not forgotten on any holiday. Once again, this is our chance to show our Vets the love and appreciation they deserve,” Rep. Parkhurst said. “Let’s honor them on Valentine’s Day for loving our country and keeping us safe.”
All ages are invited to create a card or drawing. Valentines should be delivered to Rep. Parkhurst’s office at 370 E. Court Street in Kankakee by February 8th. The cards will be delivered to 79th
District veterans at the Manteno Veteran’s Home in time for Valentine’s Day.
