On Friday, December 12th, the Southern Finger Lakes Women (SFLW), a Chapter of New York State Women, Inc., presented handmade hats and a variety of books to the residents of The Falls Home in Montour Falls, NY. The Falls Home is an assisted living facility for 92 persons and it provides residential care, activities, meals, recreation and health monitoring.
The hats were made by Judy Sawyer of “Judy Has Hats,” in Hector, NY. Ms. Sawyer also generously donated two lap robes for the project. The hats and the books were presented by Suzanne Gigliotti and JoAnne Krolak, who represented the SFLW, to Nancy Shumway, Activities Director of the Falls Home.
