Edgewood Manor celebrates Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day was a special day for the residents of Edgewood Manor Nursing and Rehab of Port Clinton.  Due to the generosity of Kroger and their many loyal customers, each resident was given a special Valentine mylar balloon for their wheelchair as the Valentine party began.  “The balloons made us feel so special,” said resident Agnus Mack with a grin.  

Red lights, balloons, bright red hearts and cupids decorated the facility.  The living room was overflowing with residents and family as the Swingsters, a 20-piece big band, had the place hoppin’ for two straight hours.  Such old favorites as “Boogie Woogie Buggle Boy”, “Kansas City”, “Pennsylvania Polka” and “Sentimental Journey” were just a few of the songs that had the audience clapping and singing along.  Residents danced with staff and band members as the music brought back memories of days gone by, putting smiles on the faces of all in attendance.
