As part of the Laurel Museum's Letters for the Military project, students from seven classes at Bond Mill Elementary School created hundreds of letters and artwork for active-duty military members.

Several students brought the letters to the Laurel Museum on Flag Day June 14 and gave them to Commander Lee Luby of American Legion Post 60. The legion will mail them to active service men and women around the world.

The Letters for the Military project is part of the Laurel Museum's current exhibit, "Laurel's World War 1: From Here to Over There." Children and adults are invited to visit the museum, write a letter or draw a picture, put it in the mailbox and the Legion will mail.

The museum is open Fridays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Sundays, from 1-4 p.m. For information, call 301-725-7975 or go to laurelhistoricalsociety.org.
