Having just moved there, we didn't know many of our neighbors, which were a mix of seniors and young families. We made little hand-made cards, put them in a plastic bag with delicious Dove chocolates, and tied a ribbon.

There are several widows in my neighborhood who had not received a Valentine's card for some time. It was great fun!
