Students at McAvinnue Elementary School showed their military pride this week in the spirit of the holidays.
First of all, the students made holiday cards for military veterans at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veteran's Hospital in Bedford.
The Lowell Spinners, the Class-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, then sent a "holiday caravan" to the school to talk to kids and pick up and deliver the cards.
The caravan consisted of military personnel, such as Sgt. Marissa Cross, the Spinners mascot, University of Massachusetts-Lowell hockey players, and Miss Massachusetts Taylor Kinzler.
The students showed even more military pride when, after Cross finished speaking, they swarmed her for autographs.
Is your family or your childrens' schools supporting the troops this season? If so, how?
