Kiwanis meeting tonight was special. We were introduced to a homebound Vietnam vet living in Wisconsin that was cared for by a daughter of one of our Kiwanians. He loves getting cards and letters as it's his only contact with the "outside" world.
The group set about writing notes and letters so he could have a wall full of greetings from our club. Genie Burns, who introduced us to the veteran, took pictures of each Kiwanian so the veteran would be able to put a face to the cards and letters.
We are thankful for those who serve and who have served.
