    We were back at Vandalia Long Term Care for Evergreen Outreach this week. It was a very hot day, with temperatures soaring near 100 degrees.
    However, the heat did not keep a group from FAYCO or those in attendance from the Long Term Care facility from coming and having fun.
    Phyllis Thoman’s music was being enjoyed as the room began to fill with the many guests. She played lovely songs, such as, “It Is No Secret.”
