First Lady Attends Inn’s Valentine’s Party
For the second year in a row, First Lady Melania Trump visited the Children’s Inn at NIH on Valentine’s Day. With NIH director Dr. Francis Collins and inn CEO Jennie Lucca, the First Lady was greeted warmly by kids and parents alike. The Valentine’s Day party featured several tables set up in stations where small groups of children were busy assembling various crafts and handmade gifts.
With her young guides leading, the First Lady spent an afternoon filling baggies with holiday candy, coloring love-themed cards and pictures, decorating cookie boxes and making cardboard-backed candygrams. A “My Favorite Things” wall and “Home Is Where the Heart Is” map were also on display. Before leaving, Trump was presented with a necklace and flowers by one smitten young inn resident.
