A standing ovation and a shout of THANK YOU to the men’s lodge of the Sons of Italy. Their generosity of providing the necessary funds to purchase a frame and swing for the residents of Haven Skilled Nursing and Rehab is very much appreciated. May you know that your act of kindness will provide much enjoyment to the residents. It is such a nice addition to the patio area. An additonal thank you to Nittany Woodcraft for the delivery and set up of the swing.

— B. Weaver
