Plymouth State University Staff Spreads Holiday Joy

December 21st, 2006 by Adam


Fourteen Plymouth State University employees volunteered at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center Holiday Luncheon Dec. 21, serving up meals and plenty of holiday joy.

Doreen Burrows, from the College of Graduate Studies, coordinated with children from Heather’s Little Angels childcare center in Plymouth to make holiday cards for the seniors. Two of Heather’s Little Angels handed out more than 150 cards. party

The duo of Tim Keefe, Plymouth State’s Dean of Students, and Errol Schlabach, a local professional musician, played a festive array of holiday tunes. Seniors, volunteers and staff all had a wonderful time listening and dancing to the music.

“It was crazy all day. There was a lot of planning, cleaning and cooking. … This was one of our largest dinners,” said Carolyn Wynn, senior center director. “It went until about 1:45 p.m., which is longer than usual. We even had to spill the crowd over to the library. Everyone involved did a great job.”

PSU College of Graduate Studies volunteer organizer Heidi Pettigrew said, “We enjoy being able help out at the Senior Center. Many seniors came up to us afterwards to say thank you. The seniors are always friendly and appreciative, and the staff members are incredible. The kitchen crew does an amazing job preparing the meals—they have it down to a science!”
