More information about the Activity Center can be found in our FB group:

More information on the card exchange:
Participation in the shoe box decoration contest is not necessary to exchange valentines. If you would like to exchange valentines, just come and join us for a fun social hour and great music on Valentine's Day at noon!

If you are participating in the shoe box decorating contest, here's how it'll work for you: All contestants' decorated shoe box entries will have a script added to them to receive valentines that have been dropped into them. A copy will be sent directly to the participant, as well as a copy saved inside of their shoe box as a keepsake. If an item is dropped into a shoe box that is No Copy, it will be sent directly to the user with no copy saved inside of their shoe box.
