  • A group of our staff and residents and a volunteer, Roberta Cagle, enjoyed a trip to Rugby, where we ate a wonderful dinner at Harrow Road Cafe.

    We were entertained by a man who played the French harp and sitar at the same time.

    He also led the group in singing old country ballads. One was “When You and I Were Young, Maggie” and “She’ll Be Coming ’Round the Mountain When She Comes.”
