The Hazelton Coffee Shop offered a Valentine’s Day dinner Friday evening with door prizes and drawings held during each of two serving times.

Volunteer Arlene Davis, who manages the Coffee Shop, is also an American Legion Auxiliary member.

Each year, Hazelton American Legion Auxiliary members work with Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock School students on various projects that, in essence, are a way that students can feel they are contributing to and being a part of the community. Students were asked if they would like to make valentines for local veterans, and they responded with enthusiasm, using their artistic talents to come up with some heartwarming and sincere valentines.

Summer Schick and her younger sister, Emma, had a great time waiting on tables at the Valentine’s Dinner and distributing some of the valentines to veterans. The girls’ parents are Russell and Kristin Schick of Hazelton.


Summer Schick presented veteran Don Davis with one of the valentines made by H-M-B students to honor local veterans and to thank them for their service to our country.

Veteran Felix Vetter was so pleased with the special valentine he received (made up by an H-M-B student) and told Summer and Emma Schick it would be displayed in a special place in his home.
