Margaret Newman Wins Cherry Blossom Queen.
Margaret Newman was recently crowned Cherry Blossom Queen at the Nearly There Home for the Elderly and Infirmed in Cloverdale. She won the hearts of the judges with her recitation of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address for her talent. One of the judges wrote “Margaret’s voice and diction was perfect. Way to go Margaret!”
When asked what she wanted to accomplish during her year reign Margaret replied,”Well, I hope to stay alive. That is my number one goal. Secondly I’d like to help new residents adapt to living at the Nearly There. It’s never easy to be put in a home. Oh, I’m also excited to get a new pair of dentures. Been lookin forward to that for a couple years. I’ve also set a goal to stay up until 8:00 P.M. to prepare for any speaking engagements that might come along with my selection as Cherry Blossom Queen.”
Those residents still awake politely clapped as they looked around for the matron that usually summoned them for supper.
The Nearly There Home for the Elderly and Infirmed hosts many activities like the Cherry Blossom Festival for our residents. Are you above 60?
