Rotary Ann South Valentine Queen & King

Rotary Senior Living went all out for Valentine’s Day, including crowning a King and Queen in both the North and South buildings.

Harold Lauridson and Charlotte Lynn were crowned King and Queen of Rotary Senior Living South, and it was both of  their first times receiving any kind of crown.

“They take wonderful care of us here (at Rotary Senior Living).  Everybody is so nice and willing to help.  It’s a good staff,” he added.

Harold has lived in Eagle Grove for 18 years and was the owner of a barber shop.  

Charlotte is a 1964 graduate of EGHS, and is no stranger to Rotary Senior Living.  She actually worked there for 30 years, in the laundry department, before moving in and making it her permanent home three years ago.
