Five South Burlington residents (pictured above from left to right: Emily Grippo, Micaela Gould-Murray, Olivia Thibault, Katie Smith, and Nadine Thibault (Olivia’s mom), made Valentine’s Day last for a week this year for the patients at the VA Medical Center in White River Junction. Nadine had contacted the VA and inquired about sending their patients Valentine’s Day cards. The VA was happy to accommodate the request and the team of card-makers quickly got to work making the Valentine’s which were delivered on patient’s meal trays throughout the week of February 14. The crafters had lots of fun and hope to make it an annual tradition.
