Effort seeks to make a difference in a soldier’s day

LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lakeport Senior Activity Center has joined with Ginny Craven and Operation Tango Mike to provide letters to our soldiers stationed away from home.

Please take a few moments to express whatever is in your heart. Your expression of thanks for the jobs they do, or good wishes you send, could make a big difference in their day.

Please do not date your letter, or add a happy holiday for any occasion. Operation Tango Mike may then use them at any time during the year.

Feel free to write as often and as many letters as you wish. If for any reason you are unable to write your own letters, there are preprinted letters available at the front desk of the senior center.

Turn your letters in to the Lakeport Senior Activity Center, 527 Konocti Ave., Lakeport.

For more Information call the center at 707-263-4218.
