GIRLS Club of Sebastopol Donates Hummingbird Feeders
Lauryn’s grandmother, Cathy Morita, was a resident in the Friends House Skilled Nursing Facility. One afternoon, while visiting her grandmother, Lauryn and Cathy noticed hooks outside of the windows facing the green courtyard. Lauryn wanted to offer a gift in memory of her grandmother that current and future residents would enjoy and thought the hummingbird feeders would be perfect for those hooks.
While the girls were on campus, they toured the Skilled Nursing wing, met a group of residents in the lobby and sang them, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” The residents offered the group cookies from the weekly Thursday Tea Social and thus the donors were able to end their time at Friends House with a treat. Special gratitude is also extended to Sara Gramm and Patti Bowman (the adult GIRLS Club leaders) for their help in facilitating this thoughtful donation. The hummingbird feeders are now hanging outside of the Skilled Nursing Facility windows.
