Love was in the air Friday for Pierce County’s seniors citizens as Valentine gifts from the county’s first-ever Valentine’s Tree were distributed. Approximately 80 gifts and care packages were delivered to residents or picked up from the Senior Center Friday morning during action pact and the Pierce County Senior Center first-ever Adopt-A-Senior Valentine project.

The Valentine Tree featured envelopes from local Pierce County seniors. Local residents, civic organizations and businesses picked  envelopes off the tree and purchased and returned special items inside a basket or gift bag for the seniors.
