Portsmouth, Va. (WAVY) – Today’s Counting Kindness was all about celebrating seniors. First, the community of Parksley came together with the Arcadia Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Quail Run Assisted Living to host a “senior” prom for residents of the facility. Children and grandchildren served as dates and everyone danced the night away.
In Norfolk, Mrs. Jeanette Bear Cartly recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Her late husband, Joe, was a 30 year veteran of the fire department. So, Norfolk Fire and Rescue has always been a part of her life. When her big day rolled around, Battalion 3, Engine 11, Recruit Class 155 showed up at her door to wish her a very happy 100th.
