On Feb. 13, the Carmel Valley Teen Korps group attended the Silverado Senior Center to make Valentine’s Day cards with the residents. Each teen paired up with a senior and talked with them, interviewing them about their lives. One of the questions was, what advice would you give children today? The replies varied from “follow your dreams” to “keep your mouths shut.”

When making Valentine’s cards, the teens helped the seniors write messages and paste decorative stickers and ornamentations to make the cards cheerful and colorful. The residents told the Korps members who they would like the card to be for, what they would like to write as a message, and how they would like the card to be decorated. The result was many beautiful Valentine’s Day cards. In addition to helping make cards, the Teen Korps group also brought along and delivered Valentine’s Day placemats that they had previously made for the seniors. Overall, everybody had a bright and cheerful Valentine’s Day.
