The Starke County Public Library is partnering with the Indiana State Library, the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University and other libraries in the state to participate in the Our Heroes Tree program.
This is a chance for you to honor military members, veterans and their families in a unique way this holiday. All you need to do is create a handmade ornament honoring a service member from past and present wars, conflicts or peacetime operations. When your ornament is crafted, take it to the Henry F. Schricker Public Library in Knox this month to be included on the tree with all of the other ornaments. If you have a story to include about that certain service member, those may also be submitted. The stories will be kept in a binder under the tree.
This also helps create awareness of military families affected by deployment.
A library member can help you with any questions you may have by calling (574) 772-7323.
