Lions serve treats to nursing home residents

Members of the South Attleboro Village Lions Club recently visited Attleboro Healthcare to serve sundaes to residents of the retirement home. Club President Pat Allard and Connie Fedelia, member and resident of the home, served ice cream with Cheryl Olson, Norma Kimmell, Karen Smith and Karen Leclerc. Residents received vanilla ice cream with a variety of toppings available. The special treat was followed by a musical program from the Activities Director.
