Lou Berry, a resident at Life Care Center of Raynham, Massachusetts, knows what it means to give back to his community.
Prior to his residency, Berry hosted an annual Christmas party for local children, offering them gifts, goodies and pictures with Santa Claus.
Susan Mullin, assistant director of nursing, was inspired by Berry’s story and the two began to brainstorm a way to carry on his legacy of generosity during the holiday season.
Life Care Center of Raynham, Massachusetts, honored local veterans with brunch and a flag retirement ceremony on Nov. 11, 2015.
Preparation began weeks in advance, and Jim Davis, Air Force retiree and maintenance director, was at the forefront of the planning process. Because of his familiarity with military protocol, he was designated as the emcee.
