Oct. 10th: John and Linda Stoeffler of Sweet Dreams Picture Pillow Project presented Commander Jim White and American Legion Post 273 with a special artwork drawing as a thank you for the support that they have received from the post. To help ease the pain of separation for those children left behind, Sweet Dreams offers a free pillow with a picture of the parent printed on it, to the children of deployed moms & dads. Every child in the family receives his or her own pillow. In their ninth year, the Stoefflers provide this service from their home in St. Petersburg. The officers and members of Post 273 are proud to help support this worthwhile effort.
