124. Pat renewed the subscription to Birds in Boom for residents

Several of the residents wanted a pretty gown with the ease of a hospital gown. So the New Castle United Methodist women have purchased about 40 over the last couple of years and Edith Tennill modified them by cutting them up the back, finishing the edges and adding ties! Now the ladies can wear a pretty gown!

The committee models the modified gowns! Edith is fifth from left.

Bernice loves the beach again.

Bernice had lived in Florida and wanted to go to the beach so we provided her with two beach videos and a special day with her wheel chair sitting in the sun with the window open and a pan of sand and warm water to soak her feet in as she sipped on a fruity drink!
