Ice Cream: (n) a delicious treat that produces lots of smiles and connects people at Laclede Groves!
Thanks to the generosity of The Lutheran Convalescent Home Auxiliary, residents, visitors and employees can smile ear-to-ear while enjoying this cold treat three afternoons each week. The Auxiliary provides the dessert and supplies while more than two dozen volunteers provide the heart and muscles needed to scoop and keep up with demand. You might say the Ice Cream parlor, situated on the 1st floor of the Care Center, is a destination for many Care Center residents who pair up with employees and volunteers to make the visits to the parlor. The visit, to be sure, is about more than ice cream. It is a time to be social and get the “scoop” on happenings around Laclede and in the community.
So, the next time you are visiting Laclede, stop by the Ice Cream Parlor to say hi and thank our wonderful volunteers for serving up scoops and smiles. The team includes: Hugh Harrington, Manager, Marie Bergeman, Evelyn Detzel, Doris Harrington, Laura Healthcote, Bob Hubeli, Elaine Hilgemann, Michelle Jordan, Marian Kasten, Len Knobbe, Al & Maxine Mitchner, Ellen Ogier, Roy Pfund, Neil & Karen Rabe, Barbara Riley, Tamara Richards, Arleen Roettger, Ginnie Schmidt, Doris Schulte, Brenda & Herbert Seibert, and Lorraine Walsh Mooney.
