Put a little love in your life by attending Community Mentor Connection&8217;s Valentine&8217;s Day open house from 3 to 7 p.m. at Workforce Development Inc., Skyline Plaza, Albert Lea.

&8220;We want our organization to be more visible in the community,&8221; said Carolyn Smith, program coordinator. &8220;So we&8217;re inviting everyone to come and enjoy Valentine cookies and coffee and find out what we&8217;re about.&8221;

Community Mentor Connection provides mentors to Freeborn County youth in need of guidance and encouragement. Mentors are volunteers from the community who are willing to give their time and talents to help these young people succeed.

&8220;What many people don&8217;t realize is how rewarding and fun mentoring is. We&8217;ll have some mentors on hand to tell you what being a mentor means to them,&8221; Smith said.

Bring a friend, co-worker, or your significant other and learn how to put a little love in your life as well as the life of a youngster. Even if you don&8217;t have time to mentor, there are ways you can help, so please come. CMC needs your help to meet the growing demand for caring adult mentors to youth.
