Keven Hppkins as "Captain Valentine"

Captain Valentine - To The Rescue

A local father can't stand the thought of children in the community not having the opportunity to celebrate Valentine's Day. He posted this message on Facebook on Tuesday, "In light of the recent developments, with the uncaring announcement by 4J and their belief that the reason for banning Valentine's Day at McCornack Elementary is that the treats are unhealthy and it may clash with someone's religious beliefs (because as we all know "loving thy neighbor" is highly contestable - we are talking about Valentine's Day people). I feel that it will be my pleasure to be there in passion red to wish those children a Happy Valentine's Day.... If you feel so inclined to support my efforts to right this wrong (and it IS a wrong) come and stand with me Thursday afternoon and deliver love. Share this with others if you wish."

Keven will be dressed as "Captain Valentine" and will be waiting for the children to get out of school at McCornack Elementary school at 2:15pm.

Violette, This was not a 4j wide ban, this was only done at Mccornack elementary school. This shows all the problems that are in America today and Katsuda has to deal with me tomorrow morning! They kids celebrate other cultures but not ours. A shame!

Valentines Day was one of the days we always looked forward to when I was a child. We handed out Valentines to every child in our classroom and there were heart shaped cookies and other treats. Its a darned shame 4J has done this to the kids.

If I lived closer, I'd be there in red and pink myself!! Good for you, CAPTAIN VALENTINE!
