The Haywood Christian Home Educators group met Feb. 8 for its annual Valentine’s party. The students made nearly 100 Valentine crafts for the residents of the Brian Center nursing home.  Several families went to the nursing home after the party and delivered them, visiting with the residents and bringing them some valentine cheer.

This is the third year for the Valentine deliveries. It is important for the children to spend time with folks of other generations and it helps the residents know they are remembered. The students got a great real-life experience in giving to someone without expecting anything in return.
