Bailey is an 11-year-old sixthgrader and she visits the residents at The Renaissance Villa. She said she started going when her grandmother was in there and she became a regular to paint the ladies’ nails, brush their hair and read to them. They know her by name and they love to see her come.
Bailey realizes that people need each other and what better way to help than to visit those who cannot get out any longer.
We appreciate Bailey and I am impressed that a young lady would take the time to visit our often forgotten population. She is quite a role model to us all.
We also appreciate Love’s Flowers and Gifts and El Torito for the gifts they provide our Local Hero each week.
If you would like to nominate a local hero, those who work selflessly for our community, call the Chamber of Commerce at 446- 2030. This honor will be given to people who work hard to make our community better.—Denice Doss, Chamber president
