Huntley students continue tradition of greeting soliders By Joyce Liput The ongoing Huntley tradition of sending mail to those stationed overseas continued this year when Huntley Grade School classes sent Christmas greetings to American soldiers. A giant-sized envelope of lovingly- made cards, letters and drawings was sent via military air transport to the troops stationed in Bosnia. George Gow of Huntley initiated the tradition with Christmas greetings to the troops stationed in the Gulf during the Gulf War. This was followed by Valentine and Easter greetings. Gow persionally delivered all the greetings to George Hellner, who sees that the packet is delivered to the airport for transport to Bosnia. Mrs. Juergensen's first grade class proudly shows off some of the many Christmas greetings that Huntley Grade School children sent to military personnel stationed in Bosnia during the holidays.
