|Scavenger checklist (Pixabay)|
Turns out, there are several veterans memorials in various locations in our community. How many times do we drive by and never notice? We've made a scavenger hunt using these memorials for families to explore together. Families who take the Veteran Memorial Challenge will get the attached sheet to complete. By answering 9 questions from the memorials they visit, writing a thank you note to a Honor Flight veteran, and turning it into the library, the library staff (using it's Sunshine Fund-jeans money and proceeds from upcoming bake sales at the library) will donate $5 per family. It takes about $500 to send a veteran on a Honor Flight, so our goal is that 100 families take our challenge!
