"Thinking Pink" With Puzzles
at Carriage House

For many of us, when we have the time, assembling jig-saw puzzles is a favorite pastime. However, for one Carriage House Manor resident, Mrs. Martha Clemmons, she has taken her passion for puzzles a step farther. After encouraging many of her fellow residents to aid her in working the beautiful puzzles, they have decided to sell them for framing and donate the money to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. "With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the number of women that continue to be affected by the disease, we just decided that this was the perfect opportunity to do our part," expressed Mr. Clemmons, on Thursday morning, as she busily sold puzzles.
The display of beautiful puzzle in the lobby of Carriage House Manor represent hours of work on the part of Mrs. Clemmons and the other women that aided her in completing the project. "Time is something that many of us have here at the nursing home, so we decided to put it to good use," expressed Martha. "And, it's wonderful to be able to make a difference and hopefully find a cure for this dreadful disease, that knows no barriers!"
Martha and her friends invite everyone to come by Carriage House Manor and select one of the puzzles that are priced from $10.00 to $25.00 and have a variety of designs and displays to fit almost any decor!
"It's our way of giving back to the community and helping to bring awareness to this disease!" continued Martha. "Hopefully, we can raise a nice contribution to be donated to the foundation, during October!"
