Catching a Dream
We, at Pruitt Health Magnolia Manor, were extremely excited to partner up with Second Wind Dreams to transform our residents’ dreams into realities. During the interview process, we noticed that several of our residents had wonderful memories to share about their love and knowledge of fishing. The passion and excitement expressed by the residents during these stories gave us our inspiration for the challenge.
We immediately began planning our trip. After contacting our local Sunset Country Club, they were pleased to provide the location for our trip. We then contacted Pruitt Health of Moultrie to reserve our transportation. We decided to further surprise our residents by having a picnic consisting of grilled cheeseburgers, sausage, chips, cookies, and a drink. We bought everything we needed from our local Wal-Mart and began preparing and organizing.
The day of the trip finally arrived. The Pruitt Health van carried us to the Sunset Country Club. The club is a beautifully landscaped golf course with several large ponds. We chose the largest pond which offered exquisite views and covered dining areas. The residents enjoyed casting out the lines and reliving past experiences. The weather was splendid and the smell of grilled burgers filled the air. After fishing and eating, we were transported back to our facility.
Our fishing trip was a complete success. Although we only caught a few fish, the day was filled with excitement and laughter. We began this trip hoping to catch a fish and ended up catching a dream.
