All-Day, At-Home Card Making
Please join us to make cards of gratitude to Veterans at the Bedford VA, active over-seas military personnel, the many healthcare workers at Lawrence Community Health Centers, and essential workers in Lexington. The 'Thank You' cards to the Veterans at Bedford VA and the Healthcare Workers in Lawrence Community Health Centers will be hand delivered to the recipients, while the 'Thank you' cards to the essential workers in Lexington would be put on display at prominent locations around town. The Lexington Recreation Center will display the cards for the month of Feb-March, and we hope to be able to display these cards for the remainder of the year at other locations around town.
