Events We Do


-Join in & share a little love by creating handmade Valentine cards & messages to be delivered to local Veterans who are receiving care in our area hospitals. Bring your friends, neighbors, grandkids, big kids — everyone is invited & refreshments will be provided! A variety of materials will be available to make the cards and feel free to donate items or bring your own if you want to add a little of your own personality & creativity to the cards.  Our objective is to send as many sweet “Valentine” messages to our American heroes to make sure they know we appreciate their service & sacrifice for the greatest country in the world and that we love them as much as we love our country.

  •   This was our second time stay. The first was in the summer so we didn't spend a lot of time at the house, but still had a great time. This was in January so we were indoors more and still had a great time. You could spend an entire week here and not tire of the place. And Melanie is a Supreme Hostess. You cannot go wrong but the place is addictive.

  •   Melanie's home was simply amazing. It really is a time capsule and so nicely appointed. We would absolutely stay there again. Autumn is a wonderful time to visit.
