Young Professional Civitan Club hosts Valentine's Day party for area seniors

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- This year millions of Americans celebrated Valentine's Day with flowers, chocolates, and maybe even jewelry.

But, for some companionship can often times mean more than all those combined.

The Young Professional Knoxville Civitan Club wanted to make sure no one was left without a little company this Valentine's Day weekend.

A Valentine's Day party was hosted for the seniors living at Heritage Assisted Living.

One woman says Saturday would have been her 76th wedding anniversary with her late husband. Giving her some company on what can be a difficult day.

YP Knoxville Civitan was charted in the fall of 2013, and is the fourth Young Professional Civitan club chartered worldwide.

There are about 40 members, ages 21 to 35, who are small business owners, members of the media and other professionals from across East Tennessee.
