'Make My Day' program spreads cheer to locals

Abilities United participants arrange, deliver pick-me-ups in new service

Dan Logan warmly welcomed four flower- and treat-bearing visitors from the Make My Day team Tuesday (March 8).

Incredible! It doesn't take much to make someone's day. Going the extra step to show appreciation to persons who don't often get recognized is wonderful and the program's organizers and participants are amazing. Great srory!
