OSWEGO – Local students and members of the Oswego County American Legion Post 268 teamed up to ensure that The Manor’s skilled nursing residents, rehab patients and Adults Day Health Services participants, all received a handmade Valentine’s Day card.
Creating the colorful and thoughtful cards were seventh graders from the Oswego Middle School, while American Legion members, through their Valentine for Vets program, personally delivered them.
Each card came with a $5 bill, which was collected through a fundraiser coordinated by the group’s auxiliary.
Pictured from the Legion is Elaine Johnson, president of the auxiliary, as she delivers a Valentine to Neal Champion, who happens to be a Legion member.
