Scouts thank local vets
KIRKLAND – On Sunday, Nov. 4, Cub Scouts from Genoa, Kingston and Kirkland met at the Northern Illinois Veterans Memorial in Kirkland. Each Cub Scout was asked to bring two or three thank-you cards with a stamp on the envelope. The purpose was to honor veterans by sending a card thanking them for their service to our country. Each Scout was given the name of a veteran living in the area. They found their veteran’s name on the memorial and had their photo taken. The Cub Scouts wrote thank-you notes to their veterans, and leaders included the photos in the envelopes.
