For Women’s Club of Milton members, making Valentine’s Day cards is a favorite annual event.
COVID-19 restrictions did not deter them from making smiles happen for others in the community. Overwhelmingly, members voted to continue the tradition of festive card making this year.
More than 300 individually designed Valentine’s Day cards were delivered to community residents through organizations such as Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth, PeachTree Health Group - Brain Injury Rehabilitation, CHEER’s Sand Hill Adult Day Program, the Salvation Army Developmentally Disabled program and People’s Place group home for girls.
To keep contact to a minimum, club member Mary Kay Williams made individual packets of Valentine supplies containing blank note cards with envelopes, assorted festive paper and Valentine embellishments, and left them in a porch basket for pickup. Members were given a week to work their creative magic. Once completed, the cards were placed back in their packets and ready for delivery.
While all members enjoyed the activity this year, they are hoping to be able to meet in person next year to share in this fun event together.
