The Robert H. Jackson Center is pleased to co-host the second annual veterans’ event in partnership with Heritage Ministries and the PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Peer to Peer Program. On Saturday, November 16, 2019, the “Welcome Home, Veterans: Mail Call” program will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Carl Cappa Theatre at the Jackson Center, 305 East 4th Street, Jamestown, NY. The event is free and open to all ages.
This year’s event focuses on the power and impact of physical letters on those serving in our armed forces. The audience will take a brief historical journey – from the Civil War to present-day conflicts – as seen through the eyes of those serving and their families. These letters provide incredible support to senders and recipients.
The keynote speaker will be Clay Brizendine, personal development coach, trainer, and author of Shoebox Letters: Daughters to Dads. Through an interactive program, he will share the power of the written word and impart the value of writing letters to those who are presently serving in the armed forces to keep them connected to families, friends, and our communities. Unlike texts, emails, Instagram or Facebook, composing a letter or note can have an immeasurable effect on a soldier who is serving our country far from home.
After the program, guests will have their own opportunity to draft a letter or Christmas card to currently serving soldiers, which will be included in care packages the Blue Star Moms will send this holiday season.
Light refreshments and tours of the historical Robert H. Jackson Center will also be available after the program. RSVP today at https://www.heritage1886.org/veterans/ or by calling (716) 338-9755.
