Aktion Club brightens seniors' day with handmade valentines

Laura Santamaria and Natalie Orlandi deliver valentines to a resident.

The Westlake Kiwanis Aktion Club spent Sunday afternoon, Feb. 16, delivering valentines to residents of The Renaissance in Olmsted Falls. 

The Aktion Club delivered valentines which they made at the Michael's store in Westlake. Michael's provided materials for the Aktion Club  to make valentines for delivery to local nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This year the club made and delivered 184 valentines.

The Aktion Club is a community service group for adults with disabilities. Delivering the valentines is one of their many community service projects.
