Guess What?  It’s Valentine’s Day

Guess What?  It’s Valentine’s Day

Yes, today’s Valentine’s Day. And, yes, you get an idea of the number of husbands who left buying that bouquet for their beloved until the last minute from the number of bouquets in Bassett Hospital’s front lobby this morning, waiting to be picked up by spouses elsewhere in the building.

SUNY Valentine’s Focus: Appreciating The Ladies

SUNY Valentine’s Focus:

Appreciating The Ladies

By JENNIFER HILL

HOMETOWN ONEONTA & The Freeman’s Journal – SUNY Oneonta student Rousseau Beauvais is again organizing a Valentine’s Appreciation Day on campus.

ONEONTA – When senior Rousseau Beauvais and four fraternities decided to create a Women’s Appreciation Day at SUNY Oneonta, they didn’t have Valentine’s Day in mind.
“We came up with the idea in January, but it was too soon after Christmas and New Year’s to put it on,” Rousseau said. “Valentine’s Day was the next main holiday, so we decided to have it on Feb. 13.”
