Representative Paul K. Frost (R-Auburn), continuing a tradition now in its nineteenth year, announces he is once again looking for names of military servicemen and women from the towns in his district who will not be home for the holidays so he can send them Christmas gift and care packages. Rep. Frost has made this an annual tradition since his first term in 1997. His district is composed of Auburn, Millbury, precincts 2 and 3 in Oxford, and precinct 4 of Charlton.

Rep. Frost noted, “For the past eighteen years I’ve sent these care packages to express my appreciation for the servicemen and women who cannot be home for the holidays. It is a small gesture to honor their enormous commitment to our nation and freedom, and let them know they are being thought of by their community during a season they especially miss being home for. I wish to thank and acknowledge them and their families for their service to our nation and way of life, wherever they may be stationed. Christmas and the Holiday Season is a time for family and community and all our military men and women should be a part of our thoughts, prayers and well wishes during this joyous season.”

The packages contain candies, cookies, local newspapers, and holiday greeting messages. If anyone in the district who has a loved one in the military who will not be home for the holidays, please call Rep. Frost’s office at (617) 722-2489 or email him at paul.frost@mahouse.gov by Monday, December 7.
