Something was a fowl recently at a local nursing home.

The new activity coordinator for Ozark Health Nursing and Rehab Center in Clinton decided a way to get to know the residents better was to introduce them to her baby.

And her baby, Sweetie Bird, was a hit, said Debra Lance. In fact, she said, Sweetie Bird will be making monthly visits to the home to entertain residents.

Lance says she is on the lookout for new ways to help the residents to increase their quality of life and is in need of volunteers who would love to come and help out with entertainment, visits, etc. If interested contact Lance at 745-9547.
