On Friday, February 3rd at 2pm, elementary students from The Garden Road School will join seniors from The Seabury at Fieldhome to present hand-crafted Valentine Hearts of Gratitude created for soldiers overseas and veterans from the VA Hospital in Montrose. The ceremony, which will take place at The Seabury at Fieldhome, 2276 Catherine St in Cortlandt, is part of an ongoing relationship between the students and residents at the assisted living facility.
The Seabury at Fieldhome created the “Hearts for Soldiers“ program "...to let soldiers know that they are always in our hearts. Everyone in the community is invited to take part in this wonderful opportunity to thank a soldier for his or her service and sacrifice." Garden Road elementary students have been decorating hearts in class with art teacher and Seabury liaison Lowry Reinauer. They also teamed up with Seabury residents on Friday, January 20th to decorate hearts together. Some of the residents were veterans themselves, sharing their stories and experiences with the children.
