Two sets of King and Queen, one from Manor One and the other Manor Two, were selected to reign over the Valentine party held for Memorial Manor residents Friday night, Feb. 12.

Clarence Green and Inez Heard, representing Manor One, and Jack Conger and Lisa Hines from Manor Two, were treated to a joy ride around town in two white limos provided by Collins Family Mortuary.

“They were so excited about the ride,” said Karrell Bush, who organized the event, adding, “It was the first time in a Limo for them.”

A large crowd of family and friends, as well as volunteers from Bainbridge Rotary turned out to help make the evening memorable.

There was piano music provided by Stephanie Sexton who plays every Wednesday to entertain the residents. There was a lot of clapping, singing along, and even dancing by some of the more mobile persons.

All were treated to ice cream and cake provided by Rotary and Fellowship Baptist Church, and each was given a string of beads.

Door prizes were donated by Dairy Queen, Boyd’s Barbecue, Rick’s Steak House, Belk and In the Garden. Corsages and boutonnieres from Marlene’s and Flowers by Cooper were also donated.

“This is something I have always wanted to do,” said Bush, who was very happy with the resulting big turnout. “It is something to make the residents happy.”
