Happy 100th!

One of a really exclusive group of clients, the pictured gentleman will turn 100 on December 18 of this year! He is enjoying a visit with one of his devoted volunteers who has just delivered his hot meal and a sandwich and salad. She also brought along some photos she had promised to show him of her father, who was a marine in WW II. His daughter also popped in from Connecticut for a brief visit. A happy day!

“ I play the piano," says the pictured gentleman. “ I’m not very good but I play easy music. Some of the sick people in my building, who never get out and have few or no visitors, love to hear my playing. So I think I am doing a good deed."
