Local Veterans Celebrate Valentine’s 

Local veterans celebrated Valentine’s Day with some young admirers Monday.Fourth graders from the Mary Snow School spent the afternoon at the Maine Veterans Home in Bangor.They dropped off cards, and together enjoyed sweet treats and a prize give-away.”Oh, I think it’s wonderful. Weekends are quiet here and they have something like this, and they have bingo games and things, it takes the time up,” said guest, Charlotte Smith.According to student Tyler Delangy, the party was part of class project. “We sort of just interviewed the veterans and asked them questions, so that we could write some biographies about them, and then return them after we were finished writing them.”Many of the veterans attended the Mary Snow School, and shared interests bridged a generational gap. The afternoon was sponsored by the Marine Corps League, which puts on about ten events with the Veterans Home every year.
