Turkey and Fixings Served with Smiles

dsc_0900Thanksgiving Day came early to the Gulfport Multipurpose Senior Center when employees from the Grand Villa Senior Living Community in St. Petersburg brought donated turkey and all the fixings for members to enjoy. Smiling behind a holiday platter are from left, Grand Villa employees Alecia Lyons and Natalie May, Senior Center Foundation office manager Jerryanne Hindman, and Grand Villa Chef Catherine Ortano.

“It’s just a blessing to help other people out,” Ortano said of being able to provide some holiday cheer for the seniors on Wednesday, November 16. For $15 each, about 120 Senior Center members enjoyed a holiday meal and attended a theater performance by actors from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of Eckerd College.
