Starting Friday, "Occupy Redwood City" will host a weekend community-building Valentine's Day event in Courthouse Square .
From noon to 8 p.m. today, Saturday and Sunday, Occupy Redwood City organizers will set up a booth in the square where people of all ages can create Valentine's Day cards for favorite local businesses, police and fire departments or community agencies.
The goal of the "Share the Love" event is to creatively thank the individuals and organizations that help to make Redwood City a better place, organizers said. Occupy Redwood City plans to express their appreciation for veterans, and police and fire departments today. Construction paper, crayons and glue will be provided to anyone who wants to stop by to make Valentine's Day cards. Courthouse Square is located at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Broadway Street in downtown Redwood City.
