Residents of all ages invited to make valentines


FARMINGTON — Everyone’s Resource Depot (ERD) invites children and adults to “make your valentines with us” at workshops from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 8 to 10, and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 11.

Participants will be able to choose from a variety of materials: yarn and ribbon, card stock and red envelopes, glitter and sequins, odd bits of lace and trim and pretty papers.

Sample valentines will be on display to help stimulate creativity. All ages are welcome, and a small fee will be charged to cover material and instruction.

ERD is located in the Education Center (Room 9) on the UMF campus at the corner of High and Lincoln streets. It is open to the public during regular business hours: 3 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. ERD programs are offered to the public to create awareness of the fun involved in reusing scrap materials.

ERD has been promoting creative recycling for more than 30 years. For more information, call 778?7150.
