01/31/14 The severe winter weather from the past week has affected everyone’s lives – from young to old alike. The children have been home from school much longer than even they wanted. The older folks have had to deal with canceled appointments and outings. And all those in-between have been struggling to shovel their drives and get to work.
A brother and sister decided to use their free time from school to make others happy. Kameron and Kassidy Dodson asked their mom if they could volunteer at Miller’s Assisted Living during the snow days. After making the arrangements the children and their mom Kim spent several afternoons helping with BINGO, playing card games and visiting with residents who weren’t able to get out because of the nasty weather. Their visits helped break the monotony of the cold, winter days and it was fun for everyone making new friends. Although the children had to go back to school on Wednesday they promised they will continue to visit when time allows.
