On Jan, 30, the women of First Lutheran Church in New Rockford invited the Tiffany 4-H Club to help make Valentines for Vets for the second year in a row. A total of 140 valentines were made and will be distributed to veterans at the North Dakota Veterans Home in Lisbon; Golden Acres Manor in Carrington; Lutheran Home of the Good Shepherd in New Rockford, and to about 10 individuals around New Rockford, Sheyenne, Devils Lake and Harrisburg, S.D.

If you know of a vet who would like to receive a valentine, please contact First Lutheran Church at (701) 947-2478 with the vet's name and address, and a homemade creation will be sent to him or her.

On January 30, 2020, after school, Tiffany 4-H Club members made Valentines for Veterans. The kids came to the event and got started making Valentine's cards. Some kids brought supplies such as stickers, paper, glue, markers, scissors and paper punches. There were lots of other supplies already there on the tables when the kids got there.

As they were making them, the cards were getting set on a table where later a picture was taken with the group. The 4-H kids that were at the event making the cards were Maggie and Hannah Wobbema, MacKenzie and Alexa Allmaras, Macey, Lora, and Chaztin Wobbema, Olivia Larson (the newest member), Taylin Jacobson and Neecie Swart. Tillie Swart was making the cards at the same time from a different location.

While the 4-Hers were making the cards, the First Lutheran Church ladies they were working with had set up some snacks for them such as chips and dip, fruit snacks, chocolate kisses, bars and other types of valentine candy, along with pitchers of water. Close to 4 p.m. the club had a business meeting. Macey Wobbema, club president, called the meeting to order, and Tillie, club secretary, called the roll and read the minutes via video call. The roll call question was, "What is your favorite type of Valentine candy?" Some kids liked gummy ropes, chocolates and sour skittles.

The kids also heard about some events coming up such as bees, bunnies, the LAW event, speech and demonstration contest and other activities. They talked about Chaztin bringing snacks and Neecie giving a presentation for the next meeting. The meeting was adjourned. After the meeting, the club took pictures with the ladies by the table of cards they had made. Then the kids helped clean up before they left. The next meeting will be sometime in February.
