November 14, 2013 -- Lorain County JVS and the Hospice of Western Reserve are working together to give Allied Health Sciences students some valuable service learning opportunities and senior citizens some very special moments.
One of these very special moments happened at Elmcroft of Lorain for a couple named Marjorie and George who were celebrating their 64th wedding anniversary with family and friends. Marjorie is a resident at Elmcroft.
Firelands students Karley Krupp, Satira King, Summer Adkins and Dakotah Klingshirn, along with Elyria student Christian Westover, helped Marjorie look "extra special" for the event and designed the decorations that adorned a horse drawn carriage that Elmcroft provided for the couple.
"George visits his wife every day and has lunch with her," stated Klingshirn. "We just wanted to do something nice for him. He was so happy, he smiled the entire day."
"Being married for 64 years is a big deal," added Krupp. "We know they enjoyed their time together and it was awesome to help them celebrate this milestone!"
