Area organizations plan various events to celebrate Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and many area organizations are planning special events to help celebrate.
While a special Valentine’s gift is still required for your sweetheart, it’s nice to take advantage of the many events planned in the upcoming weeks for area couples.
A Valentine’s benefit dance is planned on Saturday, February 9 to benefit the Jim and Nikki (Golden) Lingafelt family. The dance will be held at the Tyrone Hookies from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. with DJ Greg Ray.
The Tyrone Church of the Brethren will host its annual chocolate festival on Sunday, February 10 at 2:30 p.m. The festival is free for those who want to purchase treats to eat in or take home.
The Valentine Sweetheart Shoppe will also be available for everyone to purchase a Valentine’s Day treat for that special someone.
Also, several of the church “bakers” and “confectioners” will be competing in a chocolate tasting competition. To be involved in the tasting and judging of the entries, a ticket must be purchased.
A special Valentine’s Day “red” luncheon will be served on Sunday, February 10 at the Birmingham Presbyterian Church. Worship service will be held at 10:30 a.m. and lunch will follow at 11:45 a.m.
Everyone is invited to come and join with friends and neighbors at the Birmingham Presbyterian Church.
