Chicago Bear Alumni, Roland Harper stopped by to give us some adorable stuffed animals for our Residents. Roland played for the Chicago Bears. Playing for seven seasons (1976-1982) he was often the lead blocker for Hall-of-Fame running back Walter Payton.
These adorable stuffed animals were part of a Christmas program sponsored by Jared Jewelers. Knowing that these charming cuddly animals could bring joy and comfort to our elderly Residents, Roland brought the extras to us.
Theresa, one of our Residents, was in the lobby when he came. Her eyes lit up, when Roland handed her a snowy white dog with a plaid hat.
Roland has been a participate in our Swing and a Prayer Golf Outing and plans to join us again this year on Monday, September 19th at Wynstone Golf Club in N. Barrington. Plan to attend and you will have an opportunity to meet Him.
