Pennies in a Jar

Decorate a jar, collect your pennies, and learn about some of Jackson’s WWII veterans!

This program was inspired by the children’s book Pennies in a Jar by Dori Chaconas. The boy in the story is waiting for his father to come home from WWII. While the boy waits, he saves up his pennies to buy his father a gift when comes home.

Stop by any JDL branch starting November 1 to pick up a kit to decorate your own jar to save up your pennies for a person or place that you love.
