The staff of the Life Care Center of Carrollton held a presentation of the Distinguished Business Award for their residents, who have been the core of the community for many years, according to Life Care staff. Lynn Hayes the Executive Director of the Life Care Center explains she believes Life Care was chosen for the award because of the amount of community service the center and the residents give to the community.
Lee Webb, a resident of Life Care, and his wife Joyce Webb, who is a member of the Life Care staff, spoke with KMZU’s Shaylee Miller about their memories of Carrollton. Both were long time business owners in the community. The Webb’s said, “We owned multiple businesses over the years here in Carrollton and the community was always good to us, we enjoyed working in this town and being members of the community.” The Webbs also encourage business owners, new and old alike, to become members of the chamber of commerce. Lee Webb said it was beneficial to him as a business owner and his only regret was that he didn’t do more within the chamber.
Michelle Austin, the Activity Director for Life Care told KMZU’s Shaylee Miller about the things the center does for the community.
During the presentation of the award, the residents were asked what their favorite memories were from being members of the community. Helen Gastin said, “I drove a school bus for Carrollton for many years and the most fun was at Christmas time when I gave treats to the kids.”
Elaine Hilbrenner explained her fondest memory, “I was married in Carrollton and raised three children in the community and now have grandchildren who are members of the community.”
Lynn Hayes said the award will be displayed in the lobby of the Life Care Center for the residents and guests to see.
