Commendation for area 4-H clubs

As we prepare for the upcoming Christmas mail campaign, Mail for Our Military would like to extend special thanks to the Stockton Panthers 4-H Club and Stockton Panthers Paws Cloverbuds of Cassadaga, which participated in the most recent campaign.

Led by Mary P. Dorman, they were one of the leading 4-H clubs in New York. One of their members earned a certificate by preparing 25 cards or letters.

Mail is received from all across the nation, mixed thoroughly before being divided into hundreds of packages, both large and small, then sent to military units across the U.S. and around the world.

As the continuation of the Vietnam Mail Call project which was launched in 1965, this mail has been bringing smiles to our men and women in uniform for almost a half-century.

Anyone who would like to know how to join the Mail for Our Military campaign can receive complete information and instructions by sending their name and mailing address to P.O. Box 100, New Madrid, MO 63869. The troops will thank you, and so do we.

Keith Boardman, is executive director of the Mail for our Military campaign that is based in New Madrid, Mo.
