The Cape Cod branch of the National League of American Pen Women invites artists and creators to gather on Saturday, January 29, to create valentines to send to Cape Cod troops who serve across the globe.

The group has sponsored this event on the last Saturday of January for the past eight years, with volunteers coming from Yarmouth, Sandwich, Mashpee, Marstons Mills, Hyannis and Falmouth to share materials and participate.

The event will take place at the Falmouth Art Center, 134 Gifford Street in Falmouth, from 10:30 AM to 3 PM. People should bring their own lunch, wear a mask and be prepared to be separated by six feet.

The project is organized by the Reverend Christina Laurie of West Falmouth, president of the Cape Cod branch of the National League of American Pen Women. An average of 200 valentines have been created over the years. Last year 357 valentines went out to troops. It was the largest number created so far.

Volunteers of all ages are invited to drop in and create one or two valentines or as many as they wish. Valentines can also be created at home and brought to the Falmouth Art Center on January 29 by 2:30 PM to be included in the count.
