Here We Go Into 2020

Morningside Center was all aglow for the Holiday Season. We joined our mother, June Sowder, a resident there, and what a blessed event it was - their annual Christmas party. We thank Joan Sweets and her wonderful staff for all they do daily for their residents and for a very cheerful Christmas afternoon gathering. Seeing lots of folks you’ve known for a lifetime.
