Getting a greeting card to send a friend or loved one is not a big deal in Eureka. Sending a birthday or anniversary card to a loved one while serving overseas in the US military can take on a whole different set of issues, beginning with how to purchase a card.

A group of scrapbookers and card-makers, some of which meet at the Eureka Public Library, have resolved to make this less of a problem by making and sending cards to those serving in active duty situations.

Between 9-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m. Sept. 10, this project will be available for anyone wanting to stop by the Library and help by creating a card.

Danielle Husted and Debi Smith, both work with the scrapbooking classes for adults and middle school aged children at Eureka Public Library and are helping coordinate this special effort.

The card project is typically an ongoing project at EPLD, with cards created monthly in one of the scrapbook classes. The project on Sept. 10 is being done in collaboration with a national days of volunteer service project, designed to recognize the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Materials being used for the cards made on Spet. 10 have all been paid for through local donations.
