Skill set

Seniors show off talents at expo

Residents at Independence Village of Plymouth were offered a unique look at the skill and artistry of their neighbors recently during a Resident Expo. Residents, with decades of experience and proven talent, set up displays in the lobby of the residence and invited their neighbors to view their craftsmanship and artistry. Displays included quilting, woodworking, musical instruments, and baskets. One resident shared stories of her travel experiences around the world while Joanne Schwendenmann offered samples of her culinary skill with cookies and other treats. Bill Brown, who just celebrated his 100th birthday, shared his talent for building model airplanes in his apartment. Brown still occasionally flies with his son, also Bill Brown, while Lynne Reglein showed her quilting skills and Don and Jeanne Clemons displayed their collection of Native American flutes to admirer Carolyn Schroeder.
