Jonna Parker, Executive Director at Morningside of Godfrey with State Rep. Amy Elik accepting “Valentines for Veterans.”

State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) delivered hundreds of “Valentines for Veterans” on Friday, February 12 to long-term care facilities residing in District 111.

“Thank you to everyone who sent my office valentines to distribute to veterans in our community,” said Rep. Elik. “I know the valentines brought joy and many smiles to everyone that received them. This truly was a bright spot for our veterans this February. I look forward to continuing this program next year.”

Earlier this month Representative Amy Elik encouraged students and residents to make valentine cards with a special thank you, including well-wishes to veterans that served our nation in the U.S. Armed Forces. Within days of the announcement, Elik’s office received several handmade valentines from district residents and received hundreds of additional valentines by the time her office was ready to deliver on Friday. The valentine cards were delivered to six long-term care facilities located within the 111th District, just in time for the veterans to enjoy on Valentine’s Day.
