Windsor County Valentines for Veterans!
Karen Campbell, left, Voluntary Service Chief at the Veteran’s Hospital in White River Junction, receives “Valentines for Veterans” from Green Mountain Retired Senior Volunteer (GMRSVP) Coordinator for Windsor County, Corey Mitchell. “Valentines received from the community are placed on the meal trays of inpatient veterans in the days prior to Valentine’s Day” Ms. Campbell explained, resulting in a cheerful collection of heartfelt messages by Valentine’s Day. “Valentine’s for Veterans” is an annual effort by GMRSVP in honor of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Two hundred valentines were prepared by Senior Corps Volunteers, community partners and friends of the program. Community partners participating this year are; Volunteers in Action from Windsor, the “Ukulaliens” from Springfield, Black River Valley Senior Center in Ludlow, Springfield Meals on Wheels, Pullinen Family of Springfield, Morlock Family of Quechee, and the eleven GMRSVP Bone Builder Classes in Windsor County. Nice Job Corey! #SeniorCorpsWorks #MLKDayofService
