Kermode Friendship Society grows rose deliveries for Valentine’s Day

“It’s like being Cupid,” organizer says

Sweethearts in Terrace could be getting a special Valentine’s Day surprise this Feb. 14.

Kermode Friendship Centre staff are on the road this morning to deliver 70 roses to love birds at local schools, businesses and residences around the city.

This is the first time Kermode has done the rose delivery. Lynn Parker, Kermode cultural sensitivity and decolonization worker, says she has done the deliveries herself in previous years at other organizations and loves seeing people’s reactions.

“It’s like being Cupid,” Parker says. “Today’s life is busy, but you still want to make that special sentiment to someone.”

It costs $20 for a rose, bag of goodies, and a personal message filled with sweet sentiments from the sender. Names from every order then go into a draw for eight prizes, the top one being a room for two at the Prestige Hotel in Prince George.

Money raised will go towards the Kermode Friendship Society’s Love Fund, a collection saved for staff.
