Students in the Carroll Hills high school class recently created Easter flowers to present to senior citizens.

The class made about 350 flowers using paper napkins and glued a piece of chocolate candy in the center. The flowers were delivered to the Carroll County Friendship Center March 31, the last day of the 2021 Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month celebration. The theme was “Inclusion is within Everybody’s Ability.”  Each person who received a lunch April 1, either through the grab-and-go at Carrollton, Malvern or Sherrodsville, or home-delivery was included.

“We are grateful to them to think to do something for our seniors,” Tonya Myers, director of the Friendship Center stated.

Myers noted the center continues to make phone calls to seniors and when the weather improves, will be able to make “porch visits and hold outside exercise sessions, such as walks. Aneissa Randal also holds a Zoom exercise class several times a week.
