Ferdinand library hosts Heroes’ TreeOctober 23, 2019
From Local Sources
FERDINAND — A Heroes’ Tree has been placed at the Ferdinand Branch Library.
The tree is part of a national initiative that gives friends and families of U.S. service members a way to show their appreciation.
The program started in 2005 at the United States Military Academy at West Point and has grown every year since, and now has support from the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University.
The public is invited to visit the Ferdinand Branch Library and pick up a free ornament to add to the tree. The ornament can be decorated with names and/or pictures of U.S. service members and their families and friends.
The library’s hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, contact the library at 812-367-1671 or visit their Facebook page.
