A Special Birthday Moment
A very special resident, Helen had her 82nd birthday and celebrated it with a huge party at Dutch Haven. During the birthday bash, her care giver, Liz placed Dutch Haven's Executive Director's business cards into the helium balloons. On the back of the card it said if you find this balloon, please send it back letting us know you received it. There were over 20 balloons released into the sky, and over the next several days almost all were returned with notes and cards. Folks from areas of Virginia and as far as Richmond, Warrenton and Winchester took the time from their busy schedules to mail a birthday wish to Helen. The balloon release made this senior's birthday the best. Her gracious smile combined with the many birthday wishes from unknown strangers proved that people still do care making this a "Dutch Haven Special Moment".
Special thanks to those who returned the birthday wishes!
