Members of Cub Scout Pack 3285 honored our local veterans for their service to our country on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11. At their Pack meeting, the Scouts created special thank-you cards to show their appreciation for the freedoms they enjoy today. Delegates from the Webelos den visited Bishop Hills Elder Care Community in Rockford on this special day and hand-delivered the cards. The boys were also able to talk with the veterans individually and learned of their military experiences. Cards were also sent to members of the U.S. Army National Guard’s 1073rd Maintenance Company, based in Greenville, who recently returned from their second tour of duty in Iraq.
