Neighbors celebrate Easter with residents of Daisy Hill
The Neighbors Caring for Neighbors volunteer group and the Easter Bunny
visited residents of Daisy Hill Senior Living on Good Friday, April 2. A
washcloth bunny with a candy egg, and a cookie provided by Eckert’s
Orchard, were given to the residents.
“We’re here today to bring a little joy to your life, we hope, on this
Good, Good Friday that we are all so thankful for,” Neighbors volunteer
Lillie Cox told Daisy Hill residents.
Eckert’s Easter Bunny joined Neighbors volunteers during a game of
“Simon Says” and brought a little Easter cheer to the residents during
lunch at Daisy Hill.
“We love to get out and do community things,” said Megan Fields, general
manager of Eckert’s Orchard and a Woodford County native. “… So this was
a great opportunity for us to get to do this.” She was joined by
assistant manager Kristen Fristoe as Eckert’s Easter Bunny.
In addition to stopping at Daisy Hill, the Neighbors Caring for
Neighbors volunteer group made Easter deliveries to Taylor Manor Nursing
Home and The Homeplace at Midway, Cox said. She told the residents of
Daisy Hill this most recent visit and others in recent months were all
organized to “help you get through this year of COVID.”
Neighbors volunteer Faye Shelton played “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” on
the piano while the Easter Bunny visited each table in Daisy Hill’s
dining room. Several residents and a few staffers got their photos taken
with Eckert’s bunny.
Neighbors Caring for Neighbors volunteers Bessie Bain, Bobbie Benson,
Joyce Hedges, Shelton and Cox wore bunny ears or Easter bonnets and
masks during their holiday visit.
