Sharing the ICR love

Published by admin on

As Valentine’s Day approaches, have you ever wondered how and where Valentine’s Day originated?

The ancient Romans may be responsible for the name of our modern day of love, Valentine’s Day. Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine— on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.

While the history may be unclear and muddled, we like to celebrate Valentine’s Day but expressing our love and appreciation for others. This year, our very sweet residents spent their afternoon creating 100 Valentine’s cards for hospitalized patients at Tidelands Community Hospital. 

“Our residents are always thinking of ways they can help others in their community,” said Laura Cason, marketing director at Inlet Coastal Resort. “With Valentine’s Day approaching, they want to spread love to those who might need it most right now. We hope these cards lift the spirits of patients at Tidelands Health.”

We are happy to be able to support our local hospital and community!
