Mt. Vernon Foster Grandparents make cards for troopsTo honor the 10 year anniversary of September 11, the Mt. Vernon, IL Foster Grandparents made cards to show their support to the U.S. Military. Several of the volunteers spent an afternoon decorating patriotic cards with messages of gratitude to send to the troops overseas.

The One Hope United Foster Grandparent Program has several volunteers who have served in the military, are military wives or have a relative in the military, so this activity took on a special meaning for them.

The volunteers made a total of 100 cards that will be distributed.
