Share the joy of the season by sending holiday greetings to military service members around the globe.

Once a year, the Red Cross delivers holiday greetings to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world. The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season. Stop by the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” card station and write a message or sign a card. SSLDL will be mailing them to the Red Cross by 12/1/2014 so they can be delivered by the December holidays.

Author Event: From Flames to Freedom: A Refugee Girl's WWII Odyssey

Time: Monday, December 8 @ 7:00 pm
Duration: 1 hour
Status: Open for Registration. To register, click here.

Grades 6 and up

The World War II memoir, based on a Latvian girl’s diaries, recounts experiences from her sunny childhood on the Baltic Sea to being catapulted into the turmoil of the Soviet and Nazi occupations. She is an eyewitness as people are deported in cattle cars to Siberia and Jewish children are marched to their graves by Hitler’s SS men. Her childhood is engulfed in flames when her home and dreams turn to ashes and she becomes a refugee riding freight trains to Displaced Persons’ camps in Austria. Disguised as gypsies, the family flees to the British Zone to escape deportation to Siberia. The unbiased account from a child’s perspective relates how her family’s faith, courage, love, and resiliency allows them to rise above despair, hunger, hard labor, and invading armies to start over again. With God as a traveling companion, their wanderings lead to a new homeland where new trials await. Join author Rita Sparks as she discusses her memoir From Flames to Freedom. Signed copies of her book will be available for purchase at this event for $20.
