During Valentines Week: Have a Heart, Give a Heart

BVL is joining with the Department of Veterans Affairs to celebrate National Salute to Veteran Patients Week, which is held each year during the week of February 14, to say “thank you” to a special group of men and women — the more than 98,000 Veterans of the U.S. armed services who are cared for every day in Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers, outpatient clinics, domiciliaries, and nursing homes.

Although activities will vary from one facility to another, sending special Valentine’s cards is encouraged.

“Although those of us involved in BVL adhere to the dictum, ‘Every Day is Veterans Day’, this is a special lighthearted opportunity to show how much we care,” explains BVL Executive Director Mary Harrar.  “We’ve developed a special Valentines card especially for our friends and supporters throughout the sport of bowling to download and copy to send to veterans in care at VA facilities near you.  This is easy, simple, and you’ll feel good about it all week!”
