Nearly two-dozen first-graders from Ivy Hall Elementary School in Buffalo Grove will visit with residents at nearby Alden Long Grove Rehabilitation and Health Care Center for a Valentine's Day extravaganza with snacks, food, crafts, cards and fun.

This isn't the first time these groups have gotten together; District 96 and Alden Long Grove started an intergenerational program with the children in 2009, when they were kindergartners at Willow Grove Early Childhood Center.

Since then, the children have caroled for the seniors during the holidays and stopped in for visits.
