Right now in NH, we are in the midst of a snow storm and once again, I remain conflicted about whether I am excited to go outside and build a snowman or if I would like to find my way to a sunny Southern beach with a palm tree above my head…
In the meantime the HAPPY SPRING 4 TROOPS CARD CHALLENGE is underway and the cards are starting to arrive ! I love the decorations and happy messages of sunshine for our Troops. The format is the same but if this is your first time with us, it goes like this:
Dear Warrior: Happy Spring. A note of gratitude and some “hometown” messages abut your Spring traditions, fav hobbies, books, classes, job, sports…If you are in a group or part of a Service Family (current or by history) , feel free to include that. Drawings, poems… all fantastic. Sign your first name ONLY City and State . No envelopes needed but if you do use them, please do NOT seal them
Mail them to me at PO Box 103 Hollis NH 03049 or if you live in southern NH, there is a 24/7 Dropbox outside the Hollis Pharmacy
Our World is in the midst of some very complex times and our Troops are working hard to protect our freedoms as well as the freedoms of all around the Globe. Many of your HAPPY SPRING cards will be going to Military Bases that are involved in the crisis in the Ukraine. Your cards of care and appreciation will mean all that much more as the Troops stress levels are high and being away from home is that much tougher right now
Eager to stay in touch! Let us know if you have ideas and or questions! It takes a village as I always say….
PS The Valentines Day Card Challenge was a success! 5,000 of your amazing cards of love were sent to remote Bases and Navy Vessels! Rumor has it your messages of care made Valentines Day a happy one for so many!!
Let’s get going with HAPPY SPRING and then, as hard as it is to believe, our Christmas-Hanukah-Kwanzaa-Happy Winter-In-July Kick Off will be around the corner
