I had the honor recently to attend the “Valentines for Vets” breakfast organized by the students and staff of the Warwick Middle School. What a wonderful, moving expression of gratitude by these young people who not only serenaded the Veterans with music and song but served them a full breakfast, made them Valentine’s Day cards, as well as taking time to ask questions of each Vet. It made me very proud of these youngsters, as well as the amazing teachers and administrators of this fine district. America’s future is bright indeed!

This organization will use its business skills to raise awareness of the many organizations that are available to help you or someone you know deal with these conditions.
