The Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce’s Junior Ambassador Committee helped spread some holiday cheer earlier this week when it passed out Valentine’s Day cards at area nursing homes. The junior ambassador committee is made up of ninth graders through twelfth graders from area high schools. Carrie Royster, marketing and events manager for the chamber, said about 45 students participate in the junior ambassadors. Local elementary school students made the Valentine’s Day cards and the junior ambassador committee took them to the assisted living and nursing homes in the area. Valentine’s Day cards were taken to LaFayette Nursing Home, LaFayette Extended Care, G.H. Lanier Nursing Home, Diversicare, Sylvia Word Manor, Lakewood Senior Living and Valley Park Manor. “I think the importance is having our youth go into the nursing homes,” Royster said. “A lot of times our youth doesn’t get that experience, and the nursing home residents absolutely love having the kids come in and getting to communicate with them.”
