Nursing home to hold fundraiser

Villa Siena, an assisted living home for the elderly next to St. Frances High School, is holding an annual fund raising boutique on Saturday, Nov. 2

Funds raised from selling items on display will go towards activities and entertainment for the residents there, as well as towards purchasing items that make the home a more enjoyable place, such as library books and furniture. Villa Siena Auxiliary representatives say they hope to make it an annual event.

Volunteer Frances Hills said she has been volunteering with the home since 2005 and has "never been in a home where the residents have been treated so kindly."

The boutique will be held at Villa Siena, 1855 Miramonte Avenue, from 9 :30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
