There will be 140 cards labeled for Abernethy Laurels, 75 cards for the VA Hospital, and the remaining cards for the soldiers in Kuwait. You can also make or buy your own cards for the active-duty soldiers. No Get Well cards are needed, only Thinking of You, Thank Your for Your Service, or Happy Thanksgiving cards are appropriate for the active-duty soldiers. Sign your name but do not include your address. Return your cards to the containers on the benches in front of the church on Saturday, November 6 or Sunday, November 7. Thank you supporting this ministry!
