Freda Holland and Lenora Hunter wanted to get off on the right foot by letting the community know they care, some sort of symbolic hug for their neighbors and fellow Guyton-ers.
For them, it was a twinkling Tree of Lights outside their soon-to-be opening adult daycare center, Positively PLUSH, on Guyton’s 5th Avenue. This little tree is more than seasonal décor; every light and ornament adorning it honors a deceased loved one of Effingham’s own.
“We though it would be a good tie-in and help us kick off opening the daycare and show that we want to be involved and participate in the community,” said Holland, as Hunter’s daughter Ellen Hunter, 8, plays with their 4-year-old Pomeranian, Taz.
