We had our annual Valentine’s Day party at Henrietta Care Center on Feb. 14. The staff and residents at HCC along with our friends and family were all given the opportunity to vote for our king and queen. The third runners up are J.W. Barker and Margie Battle. The second runners up are Herbert Holder and Yolanda Tarrin. The first runners up as well as the king and queen of the sunroom are R.L. Hidgon and Ruthie Jones. Last but certainly not least, the 2013 Valentine’s Day king and queen are Harrell Edwards and Ruth Lemonds.
All runners up and winners were presented with a box of chocolates. In addition to the chocolate, the ladies also received roses. For being named king and queen of the sun room, R.L. Higdon and Ruthie Jones were given stuffed bears as their prize.
Please stop by and welcome our new residents to Henrietta! We are thrilled to have Reuben and Vernille Tiemann with us. We hope you both enjoy your time at HCC.
