One of my favorite places in the whole world is getting ready for Valentine's Day, and they'd like the kids to join the fun. Fort Caspar Museum will be hosting An Old-Fashioned Valentine on Saturday, February 4th.

Youth and their parents are invited to stop by the classroom at the museum, any time between 10 am and 1 pm. There, they'll create their own hand-made cards with paper, ribbon, and doilies, just as the settlers did some 150 years ago. These cards are a very charming and thoughtful way to say "I Love You" and "Happy Valentine's Day." Plus, it'll get you out of the wind!

This activity is free, included with your paid admission to Fort Caspar. Children 12 and under are free.  13-18 are a buck, and adults are a buck-fifty. That's a pretty nice price.

For more information, please call Erin Rose, Curator of Education at 235-8462, or visit
