All spruced up

Susie and Forest Hedglen, owners of Fresh from the Farm recently made a donation of flowers, hanging baskets and an array of vegetables to the Medical Care Facility. The Garden Committee at the facility, made up of dedicated elders, staff and volunteers, are attempting to “spruce things up” and said they couldn’t be more pleased. Jim Carney, Susie’s uncle who has been almost a father figure to her, now resides at Medicare, following a major stroke. When he was initially placed, they received stern looks and scowls when they visited, Hedglen said. Now, she said he smiles and laughs, and is enjoying all the activities that are offered.
