  • The James Ford Rhodes Junior Ambassadors visited the Broadview Multi-Care in Parma for an early Easter celebration.

    The students delivered Easter Bears to the patients and engaged them in conversation. The patients are familiar witht the Junior Ambassadors who also visited the Nursing Home for Christmas and Valentines Day. The patients were very touched and happy to have the Junior Ambassadors visit them. Some of the patients do not get many visitors and welcomed the Junior Ambassadors. One of the patients actually was so emotional that she cried when she was presented with her Easter Bear. Another patient was thrilled to discuss his miiltary experience during the Korean War. The Nursing Home Recreation Coordinator invited the Junior Ambassadors back for a social luncheon with the patients in their cafeteria in May. The Junior Ambassadors motto is Making The World A Better Place To Live!
