She conducted the resident sing-a-long twice each month for approximately ten years and compiled a special sing-a-long book of favorite songs for resident use. She assisted with resident outings, parties, games and special events. In addition, Luella served on various volunteer committees, the nominating and auditing committees, and the Valentine party-planning project. Luella also donated her time and materials for approximately 200 sets of hand-embroidered dishtowels each year to the facility Gift Shop. She guessed that she probably had embroidered over 3,000 dishtowels during her term of service as a volunteer. Monies gained from the sale of her “labor of love” were used for the purchase of nursing home resident equipment.Luella’s resident volunteer service – not counting her work with committees or her embroidery work – totals over 3500 hours.
