P.E.O Chapter EH partnered with Bessie’s Hope and paid an incredibly special visit to residents at TenderCare of University Hills. We were connected through one of our Board Members and long time supports, Ann O’Neill, who is a member of the P.E.O. Chapter.  Chapter members painted yard signs with simple inspirational messages hoping to provide colorful, uplifting messages of cheer that created a “Garden of Yard Sign Inspiration”. 

While placing signs, we also participated in a sing along.  Each round, we would personalize the song by singing specifically to each individual resident by name. We would clap along while singing and kept the tune simple so that participants could naturally sing along!  

The visit took place in the driveway of TenderCare. All wore masks and kept distance while joy and happiness were shared through music and clap along songs. Even though everyone was six feet apart, connection and love were felt by all
