Approximately 19 residents enjoyed the trip and several staff members volunteered to assist. A big thank you to the Glenville Senior Center for allowing us to borrow your van, Roger Weese for driving the senior van and helping us in numerous ways that day, the staff at Bee Run Boat Docks, and to Brad Cumpston (Marjorie James's grandson) for helping in any way we needed.
