Meadowbrook students celebrated Veterans Day 2020 in a new and unique fashion. They took time out of their busy virtual schedules to make more than 100 cards and pieces of art to lift the spirits of our veterans.  

Mrs. Gauthier worked with Matthew Colwell, a veteran who is connected with Angel's Touch Assisted Living, which is a home to many veterans.  He said, "Most of them (veterans) are dealing with Alzheimer's, dementia, or some other diminished capacity.  They don't always know what is going on around them, but when they see letters in their care packages, they always light up at the memories of getting mail."

"Getting mail was always a special occasion and an important connection. This year has been rough on them especially because visitors aren't allowed in the buildings so anything they can get to occupy their mind and time is so crucial. They love looking at the pictures the kids draw for them like flags, flowers, or the things around them that are important to them," he concluded.  

Students wore their face coverings and dropped off their cards and crafts in an outdoor dropbox at Meadowbrook. Mrs. Gauthier collected the masterpieces and safely delivered them to Matthew, who was thrilled and excited with the high volume of cards and crafts. 

Thank you to all who took time to support our veterans.  Meadowbrook is grateful for its' dedicated and awesome community.  See below for some examples of the lovely creations by our Meadowbrook students and a few of the veterans who received the cards.
