The Our Heroes’ Tree® will be on display at all Jackson County Public Library locations from Wednesday, November 1 through Wednesday, November 22. These trees are in honor of past and present service members and create an awareness of military families currently affected by deployment. The national Our Heroes’ Tree® project was created in 2005 by Stephanie Pickup and Marlene Lee. Read more about this project at http://
You are invited to make an ornament for the tree using provided craft supplies, which will be available near the Our Heroes’ Tree®. You are welcome to bring in photos or other items to personalize an ornament for a military hero in your family.
