There are many ways to say “I love you” – to a friend, significant other, or family member.  

American Sign Language Club’s contribution to Valentine’s Day is its annual “Hugs and Kisses” sale.  

Members sat inside the rotunda during A and B lunches while other members sat in the senior dining during C and D lunches to sell the chocolates. 

“We can help a lot of people, not just us, spread the spirit of Valentine’s Day,” freshman Alexia Veillette said. “I’m happy to help out other people.” 

ASL club was raising funds for their T-shirts, honor cords for seniors, and a silent dinner with Canyon ASL Club. 

For cash only, they sold $2 bags of Hershey Hugs, Hershey Kisses, and Hugs and Kisses together along with a $2.50 bag of 12 Hershey rose kisses.

ASL club worked in the mornings and afternoons to set up this year’s Valentine’s Day distribution. 

They not only sold the valentines but made the posters and cut out the to-and-from cards. 

“The club members are selling and taking the orders,” ASL teacher Amber Ramsey said. “They will be helping assemble the treat bags and delivery.” 

The chocolates purchased will be handed out on Valentine’s Day. 

 “It’s fun,” Ramsey said. “It’s a chance to get people to send warm wishes to people that they care about. And it’s something that’s worked well for me to step back and let them actually work on themselves.”
