Local senior group sends holiday cheer to veterans
Local volunteers at Senior Services Associates at Beecher Center in Yorkville prepare holiday greetings for residents of the LaSalle County Veterans Home each year. There are 184 veterans housed at the LaSalle County Veterans Home, and senior volunteer Ed Nestor of Yorkville leads the charge each year to send some holiday cheer their way. A variety of holiday greeting cards are collected and then signed for the veterans. Each card is endorsed to a veteran, and signed by a Senior Services volunteer. It takes several days to complete the project each year. The cards are then sent to the director of volunteer services at the LaSalle County Veterans Home for distribution during the holidays.
