As part of a kindness initiative, students at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District designed more than 500 Valentine’s Day cards for veterans of the 106th Rescue Wing in Westhampton Beach. The cards, which included drawings, thank-you messages and poems, were presented to Chief Master Sergeant Joseph Kruk on Feb. 14. While at the school, Master Sgt. Kruk spoke to the students about his military experiences. The Valentine’s Day card initiative was brought to the school by teachers and student council advisers Nicole Fallon and Kelly Dillon.
