  • Two weeks before Christmas, Gordon Bright received a present that was 48 years in arriving – medals he had earned for service in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War.

  • At our recent board meeting, we updated our active and inactive volunteer list and went over some of our planned activities for residents. We also discussed our need to replace some of our hymn books which are showing signs of wear and tear.

    We are going to obtain 11 new hymn books. In the back of the books we are going to dedicate each book to the memory of a recently deceased resident, Bobby Morris.
    The board thought this was appropriate since Bobby was a good Christian and well-liked by staff, volunteers and residents.
