Helping veterans

Fort Plain’s Harry Hoag Elementary School first-graders and their teachers Kyra Gallup, Caitlin Baker and Ashley Bargstedt recently completed a service project in honor of Veterans Day. The children wrote letters to service men and women, both retired and active duty, through Operation Gratitude. They also held a small collection drive to collect items for the care packages that Operation Gratitude sends overseas. They collected pens, puzzle books, personal care items and candy.
