A Solon Salute to CBL Community Partner Susie Otis who has warmly involved Anna Sarquiz, Kat Pringles and Biyorkuri Bidameri in their respective CBL experiences this year at Heaton Woods (assisted living facility). Susie is the Activities Director at Heaton Woods and is great; she's fun, creative, energetic and welcoming. Here are a few images from one of Anna's CBL projects interviewing and photographing residents and Kat painting the nails of Heaton Woods resident, Dottie Witzenberger, who will turn 100 years old in July.
