On April 23rd Edgewood expressed admiration and gratitude to their many caring volunteers with an appreciation reception. These are individuals who selflessly give their time and talent to impart joy and happiness to the facilities family of residents.
A buffet table was decorated with purple and white flowers as well as matching purple napkins and plates. The table was spread with chocolate éclairs, iced cookies and a decorated sheet cake. Along with the desserts and coffee a special punch was also offered. Robert Blankenship captivated the audience with his voice as he sang a variety of Southern gospel selections. About half way through, certificates entitled “Hands that Serve….Hearts that Care” were presented to each group to thank and honor them for their exemplary dedication to
volunteer service, Edgewood’s organization, and the residents. “This was so nice. The music was beautiful!” said Elma Cuevas, their newest volunteer.
