The Parrsboro Leo Club made cookies and delivered them as gifts to the long-term care residents at South Cumberland Community Care Centre on Dec. 20.
PARRSBORO - A local youth group has for the second straight year made Christmas a little brighter, and sweeter, for the residents at South Cumberland Community Care Centre.
The Parrsboro Leo Club gathered at the Lions Den on Dec. 20 to make cookies, which they then delivered to the residents.
"It's kind of an annual thing, at this point," said Lion Cheryl Johnson, supervisor of the Leo club. "The Leos enjoy doing it, getting together and listening to the music."
Wanting to give back to the community in some way, and knowing the care centre is always looking for volunteers and visitors, the idea came together after the Leo club was formed last year, she explained.
Fifteen of the Leo club members, along with a couple visitors, took part in the afternoon activity, and had a nice visit with the residents, according to Johnson.
"The residents are always so pleased with even a card," she said. "It's so nice to see the kids really amazed at how thankful they were for something so small. They were really grateful they were there."
