Local Students Create Valentines to Thank Veterans

Valentines for Vets

Monticello, NY – Every year, local students create special Valentine’s Day cards to brighten the lives of veterans. Last year, thanks to the efforts of teachers and students, more than 2,000 valentines were delivered to hospitalized veterans at the VA medical centers in Castle Point and Albany.



This year, the Sullivan County Veterans Service Agency will host a “Valentines for Vets” exhibit in the lobby of the County Government Center, 100 North Street, Monticello.  


Valentine’s Day cards made by hundreds of area students will be on display from Wednesday, February 13 through Friday, February 15 during the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m.  The “Valentines for Vets” program is part of the National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week.
