MOUNT VERNON — Last month, the Country Club Rehabilitation Campus co-hosted a Sweetheart Dance with MVNU’s Students Making an Impact in the Lives of the Elderly (SMILE) group to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

SMILE, explained Katlyn Schafer in an email, “is a group from Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and we visit (the CCRC) every Sunday night. We typically walk around the center and talk to the residents at Country Club, but we also wanted to be involved in planning something special and out of the norm for the residents to do.”

From this, the idea of a dance came to be. Sandi Brodbeck, activities director of the CCRC, told the News that SMILE “provided everything for a fun, special evening, including dressy dresses for the ladies, as well as young, tall, handsome men from the college to dance with, and the evening was a huge success.”
