We recently said “thank you” to the many resident and community volunteers who make a difference in the lives of those who have made Aberdeen Village their home with a fun luncheon and recognition event.
Chaplain Diane Gunsolley and Life Enrichment Director Sandy Barnes coordinated this special luncheon.
“Aberdeen Village and its residents hold a special place in my heart. It is always good to see residents that moved in when I worked there in the early 2000s: Bill Walters and Ginny Graham to name a couple, as well as members of Grace Covenant Presbyterian,” said volunteer Terri Monrad, who helps host a hymn sing every month.
“And, singing and sharing the hymns of my grandmother makes me incredibly happy,” Terry continued. “The residents choose the hymns and I enjoy the smiles when a favorite hymn is sung – even those who don’t voice the lyrics mouth the words ingrained in their hearts. It uplifts my spirits to sing with them and allows me to share my God-given gifts. I responded to a request from Diane Gunsolley, chaplain, last year to help with the hymn sing and plan to continue.”
