Each year Loveland Thompson Valley Rotary (LTVR) introduces a new heart for you to place in your garden, flower pot,
houseplant planter or anywhere you want to add a smile to your home.

The heart design changes each year. It will be commissioned from a high school art student within the Thompson School District
and benefit a local NoCo charity. All profits from the sales of the hearts goes directly to the charity designated for that year,
which for 2023 is Loveland Youth Gardeners.
