On Friday February 14th, Florence Nursing and Rehab Center held it's annual King and Queen of Hearts Pageant. Nominees for Queen this year included Mrs. Bertha Gray, Mrs. Edith Graves and Mrs. Margaret Herston. King Nominees included Mr. Butch Gifford, Mr. James Chambers and Mr. Thomas Hamilton. Also present and making one of her first public appearances since her crowning, was Miss University of North Alabama, Erica Kelly. She assisted in the judging and also led the crowning ceremony. All of the ladies looked beautiful in their formal attire and the men looked very handsome in their tuxedos, provided by Burch and Hatfield.

Southern Care Hospice assisted in the event and donated the Valentine roses given to our contestants. The afternoon was a success with Mr. Thomas Hamilton being crowned our King and Mrs. Margaret Herston being given the title of Mrs. Florence Nursing and Rehab Queen of Hearts.

Congratulations to all of the nominees and a special thank you to everyone that helped in making Valentine's Day special for our residents!
