On Jan. 27, residents and associates at The Lantern at Morning Pointe of Franklin, Tennessee, welcomed Tennessee’s First Lady, Maria Lee.
Maria and her team visited the Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence as part of her Tennessee Serves initiative. Seniors were the people group focus for the initiative in January.
“Who says serving others can’t be fun?” said Maria.
What could be better than a little pampering? Maria and her service group got out the nail supplies and provided manicures to the lady residents, sharing laughs and stories while they worked. They also donated all-new manicure supplies to the building.
After the manicures, the service group catered a delicious lunch from Cracker Barrel and served the food to the residents and associates. They also arranged for music group Rodeo & Juliet to perform during the meal.
“It was so heartfelt and genuine,” said Lori Domer, Executive Director at The Lantern. “The First Lady and her team clearly have servants’ hearts. The residents loved it. Between the manicures and the music and the food, it was just a phenomenal day!”
