Varina Rising Stars 4-H members and leaders made beautiful Valentine Cards for the Henrico County Engage program. These cards will be distributed to long term care facilities on Valentine's Day. Such a great joint effort. Members did a wonderful job. Even a three year old up and coming Cloverbud added her art to cards she made!
