As part of The Alberni Project’s Year of the Veteran activities, TAP and the Comox Centre Mall is hosting Valentines for Veterans.

Through Feb. 14, children, adults, businesses or organizations can bring in a Valentine card to display for our area’s living veterans to thank them for their service to Canada.

This includes all ages of veterans as far back as the Second World War up to the present day, no matter where they served or their role while in the Canadian Forces.

The requirements for either a handmade or a store-bought valentine are as follows:

1. Do not include candy, chocolate or food of any kind with the valentine.

2. Keep the cards G-rated, as they will be on public display.

3. You may sign your card but do not include your phone, address or other contact information.

4. Avoid using terms like RIP or images of violence or death such as graveyards or guns (these are living veterans and are men and women who served or serving in Canada’s military). Keep in mind this is Valentine’s Day, not Remembrance Day.

5. You may make a valentine specifically for a specific veteran in your family or neighbourhood and sign it as a family or group.

6. Veterans can make or buy their own valentine for other veterans. 7. Nothing larger than 8×10, please.

Your valentine must be hand delivered to TAP in the Comox Centre Mall any time during TAP hours (Tuesdays to Saturday from 10 to 4), no later than Feb. 11.

Valentines for Veterans will be on display at the Comox Centre Mall during regular mall hours near The Alberni Project museum beginning Feb. 11 and ending March 1.

For more information, call 250-339-4322 or e-mail mrbarth@alberniproject.org.
