Have you said thank you to a military member lately? 

On Veterans Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11, University of Illinois Extension, 321 W. Second Ave. Milan, is offering the opportunity.  Stop  by between 1-3 p.m. and make a “Thank You For Your Service” or “Welcome to the Quad Cities” card for a military member.

The cards will be donated to the Rock Island Arsenal to be distributed to new military families or individuals who come to our area.  The workshop will be led by avid scrap booker and 4-H volunteer, Norricia Speights.  All supplies are provided. 

This activity is organized by the Rock Island County 4-H, part of the Quad Cities Military Kids Partnership. For more information, call University of Illinois Extension at (309) 756-9978.
