Residents at the Meadows are enjoying their newly refurbished courtyard. The courtyard, which is surrounded by resident rooms and common areas, is a visual centerpiece for Meadows residents.
The new courtyard was made possible by Clayton Whitfield as part of his requirements for Eagle Scout. For several weekends during the winter, residents at The Meadows watched as a group of people worked to make repairs and improvements to the area. Planters were rebuilt, landscaping was improved and the gazebo was enhanced, making a tremendous impact to the beauty of the courtyard.
On Sunday, June 23, The Meadows honored Clayton for his project by hosting an Open House and Garden Tour showcasing the Courtyard in all its summer beauty. Residents of The Meadows, along with Clayton’s family and friends, enjoyed seeing the results of his hard work. Lakeshore Senior Communities President, John Dennison, presented Clayton with a plaque in appreciation for his efforts.
“Throughout Lakeshore’s sixty year history, the Lord has blessed us with many families and volunteers that have taken a personal interest in our mission to care for the elderly. Clayton Whitfield continues to carry on his family’s legacy of supporting Lakeshore. His grandparents, Marian & Don Whitfield and Neil & Glenda Anderson, as well as other family members, have spent countless hours volunteering at Lakeshore to brighten the days of our residents. I commend and congratulate Clayton on his hard work and perseverance in his qualifications for Eagle Scout”, said Dennison.
Residents and their families, as well as staff, enjoy the courtyard throughout the year and appreciate the thoughtfulness and hard work of those who worked so diligently allowing them to enjoy the beauty of God’s Creation.
