WILMONT — Last fall, the Wilmont Auxiliary Post 2603 invited teachers and students from area schools to participate in the state-sponsored VFW Auxiliary Veterans Day Card contest.

Students were asked to create patriotic Veterans Day cards to express appreciation and also to honor our veterans for their service. The only requirement was to have the words “Thank You Veteran” somewhere on the card.

A patriotic card created by Worthington Middle School student Willow Langseth was selected at the local VFW Auxiliary level to represent grades 4-5. Langseth’s card also won at the VFW Auxiliary District level. She received a cash award and prize from the VFW Auxiliary.

The Wilmont VFW Auxiliary offers its thanks to Mrs. Wiebersch and all teachers for supporting this project to honor veterans. The other “Thank You Veterans” patriotic cards were given to veterans at the Luverne Veterans Home, Sioux Falls VA Hospital and at the local Veterans Day service.
