Wabeno Students Want Vets to Be Their Valentine
WABENO - For Wabeno elementary schoolers, Valentine's week means more than just extra candy and exchanging cards.

Pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students sent more than 500 Valentine's cards to veterans.

Today, American Legion Post 44 vets returned the favor.

They treated each class to ice cream and cookies.

It's a tradition that's been going on for about ten years.

Veterans at the school also got to meet the student who sent them their valentine.

Post 44 includes veterans from the Wabeno, Lakewood, Townsend, and Mountain areas.

MERRILL - As Linda DeBroux walks through Merrill High School, she can see the halls she helped create.

What started as plain, whitewashed walls now look like an art gallery. For each of the last 13 summers, DeBroux has guided a select group of her art students to create murals to fill the walls.

"When I walk down, I don't just see the painting, I see the student, right there, painting on that wall," she said Wednesday. "I think of all the struggles, the struggle points they had, and parts where they celebrated."

Murals by ten students this week will bring the total to 157 on school walls. Like it does every summer, it will take long days to accomplish the project.
