Operation Rising Spirit Forest Park, a partnership with the Historical Society of Forest Park and Commissioner Michelle Melin- Rogovin was a great success! Today our volunteers at the American Legion made and wrote 85 cards, bringing our Forest Park total to 257 cards for veterans in Illinois care homes.
We held a total of three events in the Forest Park community hosting 50 total people to educate our community about Forest Park’s veteran stories and our Navy torpedo factory in WW2, while we made holiday cards for veterans. Our free events created joy and community this season and will be delivered throughout the state.
Our events included involvement and participation from Forest Park businesses, groups and organizations: Forest Park Public Library American Legion Forest Park, Forest Park Boy Scouts Troop 107, The Brown Cow, the Dive Bar Letter Writers, Team Blonde Boutique, Spa, Salon, Explore Forest Park, Duffy's Tavern Forest Park Living Fresh Market, Forest Park
Thanks to everyone for your participation
