Erie County Legislator Extends Gratitude

Dear Mr. Scarpine,

Please extend my thanks to your students for the beautiful valentines they made for our Valentines for Veterans program this year.

The valentines will be on their way to our soldiers overseas; who are protecting our freedom and that of other countries, and also to our local veterans through the VA clinic and American Legion posts. We hear from the recipients how touched they are to be thought of and to receive the kind, sweet messages from strangers who are thinking of them. There is no doubt that the valentines are meaningful and we’re grateful that you are a part of sharing a message of encouragement to the men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation.

It is my hope, that you will again next year, participate in the Valentines for Veterans Program and make a special card for a special soldier.


John J. Mills
Erie County Legislator – District 11
