Alta third graders lauded for reaching out to veterans

The holiday spirit of third graders at Alta Elementary School was rewarded in the form of an award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary National Office and a thank-you from a member of the military with local ties.

“The third grade was asked to make Christmas cards for service personnel. They were placed in care packages sent by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6172 of Alta. This project started with a memorial given to the post by a local veteran’s family. Their only request was that it be used to help veterans in some way,” said Kathy Fisher of Alta and the VFW Auxiliary Post.
