Celebrating Valentine’s Day All Month Long

February 17th, 2020

Valentine’s fun began early at The Arc of Essex County when the Adult Recreation and Respite program met for a day of confectionary making on Sunday, January 26th.  Participants enjoyed making chocolate covered pretzels and strawberries as well as heart shaped treats to share with friends and family.

Then, on Friday, February 14th The Arc’s Stepping Stones School shared the love.  Students exchanged Valentines, then enjoyed pink and red cupcakes, heart shaped waffles, and strawberries dipped in chocolate fondue.

The Arc of Essex County’s Adult Day Programs gathered at the Maplewood Women’s Club to celebrate Valentine’s Day by decorating valentine's themed totes, enjoying a buffet meal from Bella Casa Caterers, and dancing the afternoon away!  They even celebrated one of their peer’s birthdays with cake and lively rendition of “Happy Birthday!”
