Creating Valentines for veterans will be the purpose of a crafting event next week at the Downtown Library in St. Joseph.

Katey Girard is the Young Adult Librarian at the Downtown Library and said the annual crafting event gives students ages 12-18 the opportunity to make Valentines that will be delivered to the Cameron Veterans Home.

“I think it’s a good way for students to give back to people who sacrificed a lot for us… and I think it’ll mean a lot to people who might not get Valentines otherwise,” Girard said.

The Valentines for Veterans crafting party will begin at 4 p.m. on Monday at the Downtown Library and Girard said art supplies will be provided for as many Valentines as volunteers want to make.

According to Girard they are planning to make around 200 Valentines.
