Recess Day in District 3   Ladies Day Out
An amazing group of volunteers joined me for “a special Valentine’s Ladies Day Out” at Hillcrest Mable Rose Assisted Living in Bellevue. As always, we painted nails, applied makeup, and fluffed up hair as requested. We listened to stories of days gone by and we left a gorgeous group of women feeling rosy. Thank you to this group of volunteers for giving their hearts and valuable time to our friends at Mable Rose!
