Yes – we consider it a tradition already, even though it was only the second year of Norma’s Valentine Project. Because in our hearts we know, that we’ll continue every Valentine’s Day for many, many more years well into the future.
And how could we not?
It is a little bit of joy that we can add to our seniors who are mostly home bound, either in a senior facility or nursing home. Not everybody there gets visitors or much diversion from daily life. And as always: some extra love never hurts!
Norma’s Valentine Project came together nicely yesterday, and we were able to make a lot of people happy because of you! Heartfelt thanks go to:
Dawnalita MacIsaac Cotler
Teresita Palacio Schaeffer
We were blessed to hand out 228 Valentine Cards, 19 hand crafted tissue flowers, 9 flocked plastic roses, 11 stuffed animals, 20 candy hearts, 12 Valentine balloons, 5 Love & Peace ornaments by
Norman Gitzen, a note pad, a rosary, a cosmetic travel pouch, 5 Valentine heart & flower paper weights and 17 red/pink/purple bead necklaces.
That’s a total of 329 items, more than three times as many as last year’s 104.
I am so very proud of every one of you!
Thank you for your contribution: Teresita, Norman, Norma, Carol, Leslye, Mary and Dawn. You ROCK!!!
On Valentine’s Day 2020, members of the Love & Peace Society visited three Senior Facilities:
1.) Hamlin Place in Boynton Beach
2.) La Madonna Senior Residence in Lake Worth
3.) Embark Senior Living in Lake Worth
Here are some more pictures from our visit to the three nursing homes. They are pictures that are already etched into our hearts forever.
