On Christmas Eve the Volunteers from Bay District made our annual trip to the Chesapeake Shores Nursing Facility to visit with the residents and staff. We have doing this visit on Christmas Eve for over 20 years. This year we arrived with members from both stations and over 130 gift bags for the residents. Our associate members assisted us with getting the gift bags ready, each one included a stuffed animal and a few pieces of candy.
We make our way down each hallway stopping at every room so that Santa can make a visit and drop off a gift bag. I’m telling you as I tell all the new members that come down with us that it truly warms the heart to see the looks on the faces of the residents. Some of these people don’t see anyone most of the time and we want to make sure that doesn’t happen on Christmas.
