The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Feb. 11 in the home of Sharon West. Refreshments were served to the members as they arrived for the regular monthly meeting.

President Bernice Person called the meeting to order. Secretary Vanessa Bosanko read the minutes of the January meeting, gave the treasurer’s report, and conducted the roll call.

After a short business meeting, an interesting and fun program was presented by Sue McLelland, program leader, on “Valentine’s Day.” Bringing to mind several customs in the observance of this holiday, one was especially “romantic.” Boys and girls would put their names in a hat and each would draw a name to be their “Valentine.” The names were then pinned on their sleeve and worn for a week, hence the saying, “They wore their heart on their sleeve.”

Some historical facts given by McLelland include:

•More Valentine cards are sent, second only to Christmas.

•One billion cards were sent last year, with more cards being received by teachers.

•Two million red rose stems and 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate candy were sold.

•In 1980, jewelry became very popular as Valentine gifts.

To make sure each club member had a “Happy Valentine’s Day,” Ms. McLelland gave a handmade valentine to those present. The cards were made with the assistance of Sue McLelland’s granddaughter. Each was also given a red rose pen, chocolate kisses, and a “Candy Ring Pop” for the gift of jewelry.

The March hostess will be Molly Rowell with Sandy Lynn as program leader. Mildred Kallies will serve as the March Nursing Home Visitor.

Members in attendance for the meeting and program were Edith Akin, Vanessa Bosanko, Linda Carden, Judy Childress, Cathy Hilton, Ginger Jackson, Sandy Lynn, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Sharon West, Barbara Wiatrek, Billie Jo Wolff, and Teri Wolff.
