Second Wind Dreams
Project-Sewing for Seniors: Edith Tennill, a member of the Second Wind
Dreams Committee organized a sewing workday at the New Castle United
Methodist Church to make a special fabric bib for
residents at Providence New Castle (previously known as Homestead) Nursing Center. There were volunteers from the
Smithfield Christian Church, the New Castle Baptist Church, the
Simpsonville United Methodist Church, the Pleasureville United Methodist
Church and of course the New Castle United Methodist Church working on
the project from 10:00 until 2:00 and they completed about 60 bibs.
Many of you know about the Second Wind
Dreams program that grants dreams of residents of nursing homes!
We have completed OVER
500 dreams! Thanks!
