Machesney Park Mall honors military


Machesney Park Mall will kick off its campaign to honor and support the troops serving the United States with a ceremony honoring the men and women of the armed forces April 26. Pictures of area soldiers will be posted throughout the mall, and the color guard will perform at 1 p.m.

The World’s Largest Greeting Card From Home, a 300-foot sheet of paper to be sent to soldiers abroad, will be available for people to sign, and tables will be set up for children to color pictures and cards to send. Donation boxes will also be available for donations of items troops are in need of in the Middle East. The boxes and giant card will be available through May. The blood mobile will also be at the mall each weekend in May.

Families of those with a loved one in the armed forces are invited to bring photos of those they wish to include in the display. Information: 654-9880.
