AMY DALLMANN of Mahube Community Council shows kids a good example of a holiday card they could make for a member of the military. More than 100 greeting cards will be set to local people serving overseas in the military. These kids were working at the DL Boys and Girls Club on Wednesday.

Kids to troops: We love you

For U.S. Armed Forces personnel who are deployed overseas, the holidays can be a particularly difficult time for dealing with an extended separation from their friends and family back home.


To help give them a little boost of Christmas cheer, the members of the Detroit Lakes Boys & Girls Club, United Methodist Church youth and children's services and Mahube's Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) combined forces this past Wednesday on a greeting card service project.
