Heartfelt cards from Nevada were wonderful

To the editor:

My name is Katie Parker (Shickell) and I am a 2006 Nevada graduate. I work in West Des Moines at a skilled nursing facility for people with Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of Dementia. I put a request on my personal Facebook page for Veteran’s Day cards for my 14 veterans. Nancy Port coordinated with the Nevada Schools to have cards made and sent over to my work. In total I received over 800 cards from all over Iowa and surrounding states. I am so proud to say that out of those 800 cards, 331 came from Nevada. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was able to give each Veteran over 50 cards/letters. Thank you to all of the teachers who took the time to teach their class about Veterans and make heartfelt cards for mine.
