Marian Students Bring Valentines Joy to Bethany Residents
On Thursday, February 16th, Ms. Morteo, Mr. Flynn and Mr. Perrone accompanied by 21 Marian students traveled to Bethany Healthcare Center to entertain the Sisters with a Valentine themed program. Each month, December through May, members of the Marian Mainstagers and members of the choir and orchestra show off their talents. They also distribute gifts – this month we brought the Sisters African violet plants and gripper socks. Since they use our visit as a time to celebrate the birthdays which occur during that month, the students hand out ice cream cake and punch. One of the highlights of the visit is when the students spend time talking to the Sisters. The students as well as the residents of Bethany enjoy these visits and some lasting friendships have resulted.
