  • Sunrise Volunteers: Bingo!

     The executive board of the Sunrise Volunteers met Feb. 10 to discuss fundraisers and concerts.

    Also mentioned was how much the residents enjoy their new Bingo cards we provided for the sessions held twice weekly. The cards are senior friendly and very durable.

    Over the holidays, we gave T-shirts to each resident. Their names were written on the collar. Some residents have no family connections and a Christmas gift is a real blessing to them.

  • Junior Bowen named a Sunrise Hall of Fame member

    Junior Bowen came to Sunrise Manor Nursing Home as a volunteer in 2000 when his mother became a resident. Even though his mother passed away, he has continued to come to the nursing home daily to visit with residents.

    Junior has developed a wonderful relationship with residents, staff and volunteers over the years. Some residents respond better to Junior than they do to anyone else – and truly miss him when he is not there.

    His 14 years and 15,000 hours of volunteering is another example of the many dedicated volunteers here at Sunrise Manor.
