Fort Lauderdale, FL, February 12, 2010 --( The Ehlers Group, the award-winning strategic marketing and communications company, is seeking 365 Senior Love Stories.

The company, which specializes in marketing programs for senior housing communities, is kicking off its quest for 365 Senior Love Stories on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2010, for a book being compiled by authors Janis Ehlers and Kerry Green.

"We are often inspired after meeting residents at our clients' communities," said Ehlers. "They have such rich histories. From their first meeting and courtship to when they married and their early lives, these are wonderful heartfelt stories that need to be written down."

The idea for the book was sparked during a recent visit to The Carlisle, a retirement community in Naples, Fla. Residents Jim and Winnie Perrill shared the story of their second marriage with Ehlers, who thought the romantic couple’s life sounded like a Lifetime Television movie.

"They are so in love and happy," said Ehlers. "Everyone enjoys hearing a great love story."
