St. Valentine’s Day came a little earlier this year for some elderly residents at the Beckett House in New Concord. Today residents were struck by cupid as seventh grade students from East Muskingum middle school delivered Valentines surprises. The residents all gathered in the rotunda lobby of the building to talk with the students and receive their Valentines. Being able to put a smile on the faces of those who are sometimes forgotten was fun for the students who participated in the giving. Each resident was given a carnation, a valentine and a Tony the Tiger doll. The tigers were donated by the Kellog Company and given to the United Way. Dan Hartman Executive Director of the Red Cross, a United Way agency, set up the event with the area nursing homes and the students.
