GNSHappenings July-August 2019

Written on: August 27, 2019

These are the very, merry maids of Sacred Heart Center in Buffalo , Paula Zinzola (soon to be GNSHA) and Sister Barbara Harrington GNSH. They arrive every Monday afternoon to mop, dust, and shine our hospitality house. They do this with humor and great expertise. Please note: The Merry Maids are not for hire any place else!

Buffalo goes to Batavia

Sister Dolores O’Dowd suggested getting  together with Sr. Barbara Pollock, so everyone met at Alex’s in Batavia. Pictured left to right: Sisters Donna Lord, Dolores O’Dowd, Sheila Stone, Barbara Harrington, Jean O’Shaunecy, Barbara Pollock and Marita Campbell.

Sr. Donna Jean Gets Some Love…

On Monday July 29, there was a special visitor to St. Joseph Manor. Maureen Goodall made sure Sr. Donna Jean got to greet the Phillie Phanatic up close, and what happened next, had everyone laughing!
