Sharing some sweetness

Residents and staff members at Pleasant Meadow Manor were recently on the receiving end of some community love when members of the Norwood Lioness Club stopped by with cake and ice cream.

On Aug. 5, representatives from the Lioness Club, who were wearing face masks and practising social distancing, showed up at the Norwood, Ont. long-term care home’s parking lot with the sweet treats that were dished out to everyone.

The Peterborough Examiner even showed up to take a photo that was published the next day.

This isn’t the first time the Norwood Lioness Club has shown its support for the folks at Pleasant Meadow Manor. In February, club members dropped off Valentine’s Day cards for everyone.

While the global COVID-19 pandemic has been a trying time for everyone, it has also sparked many random acts of kindness like this.

Kim Williams, the life enrichment co-ordinator at Pleasant Meadow Manor, says the cake and ice cream the Lioness Club delivered went over well with everyone.

“The residents were overjoyed at their generosity and thoroughly enjoyed their treats,” she tells The OMNIway.
