Scouts write cards to assisted living residents

Several EPC Cub Scout Pack 27 Webelos Scouts and two of their siblings created greeting cards.

“I’d asked those interested to do so, out of concern for the elderly in assisted living,” said Webelos Den Leader Dave Dahl. “Our cousin Miriah Katzenberger is a nurse at a facility and sees residents going daily to their mailboxes and they receive little to no mail. With the COVID-19 shutdown they’ve been having no contact and have been so isolated it caused myself much concern.

Dahl said to help bring the residents cheer he asked for volunteers from his Webelos den to make cards.

“Three of my Webelos Scouts, and two of their brothers who are both Wolf Scouts made cards for residents at Winn Prairie Freeport memory care,” Dahl said. “The cards were delivered last week by my son Brodie Dahl.”

The events coordinator was very excited for their 14 memory care and other residents.
