A history of Valentine's Day and of the paper Valentines that celebrate the day.

Part Traveling Exhibit, Park Historical Talk, Part Workshop, join Ellie as she celebrates her very favorite holiday! Who was St. Valentine really? Who sent the oldest Valentine that is still in existence and what did it say? How did sending paper Valentines to loved ones catch on in so many places? These and other questions will be answered in this fun and informative presentation.

Presenter Ellie has been making her own hand-made Valentines since she was four years old. Every year she creates paper and lace treasures for her friends and family and she celebrates anything and everything heart-shaped all year long. Ellie will share her collection of vintage Valentines and her research into the history of this holiday with participants. A Valentine making workshop will follow the talk. Ellie has curated Valentine kits including doilies, scrap, and ribbons so attendees can make their own handmade Valentines! Participants who already make their own Valentines are more than welcome to share with Ellie and everyone else. 

Registrants may pick up their Valentine making kit during curbside service hours. 

Please include an email address when registering and an online meeting invitation will be sent before the session.
