A short month with lots to do
Well, here we are in the middle of February with Valentine’s Day just around the corner on Monday. I wonder about the current significance of this day. I asked the question in the office and was told that it’s not just about boyfriend/girlfriend, husband and wife; it’s about different kinds of ‘love’. School children are given class lists and required to do Valentines for each member. I would think this would give each child the opportunity to think about the strengths of other individuals, in other words, look for the good to emphasize. This is a much better system than what went on in my day; some children only got two or three cards then.
For many parents it’s a day to express their love for their children in a different way. There are those that find it hard to express their feelings but a special card might do the trick.
Check out our Valentine’s page for some ideas on how you can celebrate or find the perfect gift for your loved ones.
If you are involved with a group or organization that would like to use recreation fields in the District of Invermere you need to fill in an application.
