Senior Citizens Celebrate Cupid's Holiday

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash--  In the Tri-Cities love was in the air at Riverton Retirement and Assisted Living in Richland.  Dozens of senior citizens packed the kitchen for an afternoon dessert party starring, what else, chocolate!

Valentine's Day is an old tradition for these senior citizens, but that doesn't stop them from getting in the loving mood.

"My husband and I have been married for 64 years and so we've been sweethearts quite a long time," says Margaret Walker.  "I just really think it's special to celebrate sweetheart's day!"

Margaret says her favorite Valentine's memory is from when she was a kid, making cards for her classmates.  She admits the holiday is a bit different for her these days.
