Amber Cook, Activities Coordinator at Memorial Hospitalís Personal Care Home received
a generous, anonymous donation of cash with a note simply asking her to pay it forward
by providing something extra special for the residents.
The residents got together to talk about ideas for something special and
voted to choose a trip to Williamsport for a cruise on the Queen of the
Susquehanna Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat.
Transportation to Susquehanna State Park was donated by Kay McNeal.
Twenty residents plus staff, volunteers and family members made the
trip and enjoyed an hour-long boat cruise and guided historical tour.
They could sit and watch all the other boats, jet skis and campers as
they slowly floated up and down the beautiful Susquehanna River.
"I want to offer a big thank you for the kindness and generosities of
the anonymous gift as well as offer much appreciation to each and every
volunteer who helped make this trip an enjoyable success," said Cook.
