The students worked with the residents to create paper flower bouquets, wreaths made of hearts, and puppy Valentine cards.  The afternoon was filled with laughter and rich stories from past Valentine’s Days. Class of 2022 sponsors Erin Mahoney and Amanda Riemenschneider, along with freshman class administrator John Shaffer, accompanied the seven students and their parents. Both the students and residents are looking forward to the next opportunity to continue this community partnership.
