Holiday for Heroes Make a holiday card for a veteran at Red Hook Public Library

(RED HOOK, NY) – It’s not every day we get a chance to celebrate our heroes, but from 11 to 4 p.m. Saturday, December 7 (Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day), Red Hook Brownie Troop #10517 and Red Hook Public Library are banding together to make cards to send to veterans to let them know they have not been forgotten. Everything you need to make a holiday card will be available – come by and let a hero know you care.

This program is free and open to the public.

Red Hook Public Library was founded in 1898 and serves the community of Red Hook and its need for lifelong learning. Since 1935, the library has made its home in a building designed by Orson Squire Fowler. Built by Red Hook Tobacco Factory owner Allen Barringer Hendricks, the house is one of the finest examples of octagonal architecture in the Hudson Valley.
