On Saturday February 11th, the Selkirk FD participated in the February Cards For The Troops Event. Under the guidance of Melody Burns, who coordinates this event, Selkirk FD members, along with Elsmere FD members, Veterans, and family members, helped deliver 80 boxes filled with Valentines Day card that will be sent overseas, to military members.
A small processional left Panera Bread in Glenmont, with the 80 boxes, and proceeded to the Glenmont Post Office where the boxes were delivered. This event is also held at Christmas time, as well as a couple of other times throughout the year.
Below are some pictures from the event. Below is also a link to the Christmas Cards For Troops Facebook Page as well as a link to the Veterans Miracle Center, a place where Veterans in need can go and get necessity items free of charge. They are always looking for help and donations.
