Roseville kids, seniors hold patriotic painting party
Maddie Wildie pointed out her hand-painted cards among the dozens laying on a table at Alta Manor Assisted Living and Memory Care Community in Roseville.
"We're making cards for the troops in Afghanistan that say thank you for protecting our country," Maddie said.
The 9-year-old, her younger sister Allie and about 20 other kids from St. Clare Catholic Church joined residents of the senior facility on July 12 to make cards for Sacramento Blue Star Moms to add to a growing care package, which will be mailed to troops later this month. Blue Star Moms is a service organization that supports U.S. troops.
