Christmas In A Box: An Opportunity to Give Some Christmas Joy To Our Veterans

   Today our friend, Jeanie Mendenhall, fulfilled a dream.  Last Christmas our little 20-year-old redheaded friend determined to help make Christmas a little brighter this year for some.  Today, Jeanie brought joy to the lives of 18 people at the Saint Cloud Veterans Hospital Retirement Home, as she brought them "Christmas in a Box."  Each box that she delivered was filled with a miniature Christmas tree, decorations, small gifts, and a Christmas book with a CD.  In addition, Jeanie brought helpers and musicians to bless the veterans. She brought her family (Kerry, Breezy, and Doug--Dad was working), and some friends (Ryan, Linnea, Stephen, Peter and Michael) along with her, and together they sang carols and played their violins.
     "I wanted to find a way to give back a little for all that they have given for us," she said of those who have fought for our country.  To see the faces of those who received "Christmas In A Box" today, I think she accomplished her goal.
By the way, WCCO-TV's 6 o'clock news broadcast featured Jeanie!
