Diary Entry:  Feb. 13, 1954

"Children excited.  Harbins are having a Valentine party for the hill.  Dressed Ann in her velveteen dress.  She was so proud & strutted off.  Ann H. came after me to come too so I went & joined in the fun.  Pink ice cream and big heart cookies were refreshments.  Film strips from culture center then games.  Finished Michener's "Sayanara Means Goodbye".  Plum blossoms in the yard.  Lovely, fragrant narcissus too."
