Scrolls for Troops Event Set for November 11 at Applebee’s


Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, local Easton resident George Jackson is holding a Scrolls for Troops event to obtain messages of thanks for deployed members of the military. George takes huge rolls of paper to local events and businesses to have community members sign their name and leave a message for those who cannot join their families during the holiday season. He then send them overseas, one scroll to each branch of the military, so they can feel the warmth and gratitude shared by the Easton community.

George has been doing this for several years, and has found that his scrolls do indeed have an impact on those who are overseas. He will be at the Easton Commons Applebee’s on 11/11 this year, in advance of Thanksgiving and we’d really appreciate any help you can get sharing this event so we can get as many signatures as possible for these scrolls. No purchase is necessary, we just are asking for folks to come out, sign the scrolls, and help send warm wishes and appreciation to our deployed troops.
