Congress woman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) visited Rose Hill Elementary School in Kirkland to join students in making Valentines for Veterans — a program that encourages the community to recognize veterans throughout the year.
“The Valentines for Veterans program is a wonderful opportunity for our local students to make a connection with a veteran and thank these brave men and women for their service,” DelBene said. “We can all show our appreciation for those who served our country in uniform by asking veterans to ‘Be Mine’ this Valentine’s Day.”
The valentines made on Monday will be delivered to the Veterans Affairs hospital in Seattle and veterans’ service organizations on Valentine’s Day.
DelBene has participated in the Valentines for Veterans program for the past three years.
