THE GOSHEN NEWS
Valentine’s Day can be an exciting day filled with candlelight dinners, wine and loving sentiments.
Or, it can be a monotonous day filled with canned food, bottled water and waiting for a letter from home.
It just depends on which side of the Atlantic Ocean you reside.
Recently, a local group met to make Valentine’s Day a bit more bearable for some troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. At their monthly meeting, the Michiana Blue Star Mothers of America made quick work of assembling approximately 25 care packages filled with homemade cookies, snacks and candies to send to loved ones and their buddies in time for the holiday. The carefully packed boxes included letters and Valentine’s Day cards lovingly made by students from Prairie View Elementary, Mary Feeser Elementary, North Side Middle School and the special education classes from Memorial High School.
