Give your heart to seniors

February 14, 2009

The church decided to host the event to turn Valentine's Day into an opportunity to serve others, evangelist Desiree Prather said.

"We decided we'd go out and do something special for senior citizens," she said.

Volunteers decorated the church with balloons, hearts, archways, red curtains and a seating area with sofas piled with red pillows and throws. There also was a dance floor and a square of tables, where guests played bingo and were treated to a spaghetti dinner.

James and Eshelman were two of about five seniors who attended. Prather said the church had hoped for a larger crowd, but many senior centers in the area already were hosting their own Valentine's Day events.
