This weekend, we remember those who have served and sacrificed to make living in our beautiful country what it is today.  Kids will have the opportunity to express their gratitude with letters to our soldiers, or share their feelings in a picture to send overseas.  We’ll help them create a “Tribute Garden” of red, white and blue for their own to take home to remind them how important our troops are every day!  If the weather’s nice, they can help us plant in the Kid’s Village gardens too!
