VALENTINES DAY CRAFTS- Volunteers needed!! We will be working on Valentine's Day Crafts for residents of local nursing homes on Saturday, January 26, in the school cafeteria from 12:30-2:30. Snow Date- Saturday, Feb 2. Please join us for this fun and rewarding activity. No special skills are needed- most crafts are peel and stick. The crafts will be given to residents of 6 area nursing homes. VALENTINE CARDS FOR NURSING HOMES- Please consider buying/making valentines at home for nursing home residents! This would be a great activity for both children and adults. The valentines can be store bought (those little boxes of cards would be fine) or they can be handmade cards. Nursing home residents will be so happy to receive them! They can be addressed to “Friend” or something similar. You can drop off the valentines in the Social Concerns bins and we will bring them with us to the nursing homes when we drop off the crafts. All valentines are due by Saturday January 26th
