Cards for Soldiers - This March
Hey all - just a quick post to let you know about an event coming up in Cross Plains end of the month. God put this project on my heart - and my goal is to have the community and surrounding area rally to make 100 cards for military personnel serving our country from this area. I will be making some cards ahead of time as well for people who only wish to write a note of thanks.
If you could pass the word about this event that would be great. Crossroads Coffeehouse is having someone make up posters - if you have a good spot to place an 8.5x11" poster please stop by the coffeehouse (if you are local) by the end of the week to pick one up, or contact me I will make sure you receive one.
Following is a little press release should you like to help me advertise it through your own means, whether it is Facebook, blogging, or an internal company newsletter or ad flyer.
"Cards for Soldiers" - March 24th from 10-11:30 a.m., and 1:30-3:00 p.m. at Crossroads Coffeehouse, 2020 Main St., Cross Plains. Come and make/write a card of thanks for our military service men and women. Children 10 and under must be accompanied by adult. Coffee and hot chocolate provided. Hosted by Crossroads and Edward Jones-Cross Plains Branch. Sponsored by Sprint Print II, Middleton; Fiskars Craft Division, Madison; Cosmo Cricket, Utah; Dab’N Stick, Illinois; Scrapbook Superstore, Madison.
Every day I am thankful that I have the freedom to worship, vote, and live without fear. Too often we take for granted the freedoms we have, and if it were not for those ensuring our freedom, our world would be a much different place. Thanks for helping me spread the word.
