I would like to thank Marlene Andes ,  Mitzy and everyone at the Hartsville Baptist Church for inviting me, my best friend Ava and my mom to visit on Sunday.  Last year their small town of 600 people collected cards for me for the Red Cross Holiday for Heroes program.   They were having a chicken bbq  on Sunday and invited us to join them.  Their church was built in the 1800’s .  We talked about the importance of volunteerism ,  made cards together for this year’s  goal of 15,000 cards and  had a wonderful lunch.  I even got a chance to meet their hometown Hero,  William Eck.  He is a 96 years old  D-Day Veteran.  He was a Ranger in WW11 and landed on Omaha Beach.  Thank you so much for a great day and for making cards with me for this year’s goal of 15,000 cards  for our soldiers.
