𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐚 𝐕𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐧 - 𝐖𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐚 𝐋𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐤 𝐘𝐨𝐮!

The Children's Library is partnering with Honor Flight Dayton, Robyn Barnhart, and Best Friends Pet Assisted Therapy to provide THANK YOU LETTERS for veterans leaving on an Honor Flight October 15, 2022. Letters should be dropped off (or if a school, ready for pickup) no later than Monday, October 10th.

The letter could be a note addressed to "Dear Veteran" letting them know that you are grateful for their service, or a patriotic drawing/coloring sheet with a letter on the back. Young children could draw a picture and write a sentence or two below it. The veterans also enjoy learning about you and your family's own military experiences.
