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.
