COD Photo Club Provides Free Family Portraits for Military Families – “Valentines for Veterans” February 7

smWillard & Joyce

World War II Veteran Willard Smith and his wife Joyce participated in the inaugural “Valentines for Veterans” event at the COD Photo Studios Saturday, February 7.

Thanks again to the Valentines for Veterans Volunteers – All of you demonstrated your many talents, teamwork, and professionalism to all the veterans we photographed. It was great to see you all using the skills you learn in classes in a real-world project that gives back to the community. I was touched by your enthusiasm for this service project. and am sure the military families were, too. I hope we can do it bigger, better and serve more families next year.
