Valentine's Day 2017
The time between New Years and Spring can be dreary. One bright spot is Valentine's Day. I have decided to plan a visit to our favorite Vets in Vancouver. You don't have to bring anything, but if you do there are about 75 patients. Cookies are great but not home made and no pets. Home made Valentine's cards would certainly be welcome.
Sunday February 12, 2017
Thanks to all who joined us. There were eleven of us, 65 patients and six nurses. The volunteers brought 132 home-made Valentine's cards. We visited the vets in their rooms and in the halls, gave them cards and heart-shaped chocolates. We also gave them to the nurses who were cheered up as much as the patients. All in all, it was a rousing success. One of the volunteers visited the school and got 85 Valentines for our VETS. He spoke with each of the three classes involved and answered lots of questions. He told me he read every one of the Valentines and said there were lots of beautiful thoughts and love and care in each one.
I am already thinking about a visit on Veteran's Day, November 11.
