The residents at the Zerbe Retirement Community love the Bookmobile! When they learned that the current Bookmobile was in need of replacement, they immediately went to work in planning an event that would help the cause and give special meaning to their residents. They organized a Rock-A-Thon that raised $1,600 toward the purchase of a new Bookmobile. Participating residents and staff rocked in rocking chairs for 30-minute intervals. The ‘rockers’ found sponsors that helped to raise much-needed funds for the new Bookmobile.
Cheryl Heineman, Activities Director, headed the project with the same level of enthusiasm as the residents. She said, “We really love our Bookmobile and want to support it any way we can!”
