PSU Inter-Sorority Association sponsors Spring Fling

PLATTSBURGH Students belonging to the Plattsburgh State University Inter-Sorority Association definitely know that theres truth to the old saying, youre never too old to have a little fun. The group of male and female students recently sponsored a Spring Fling for residents at Meadowbrook Healthcare, giving them lots of people to visit with, a chance at craft-making, snack and refreshments and even some dancing partners. Live music was provided courtesy of the Chris Amisen Band. This is one of the more worthwhile projects weve done, said Dan Mulligan of the Inter-Sorority Association, who have organized several other community service projects. The college students seemed to be having just as much fun as the residents and guests throughout the afternoon event. Some worked the inter-active craft tables, where residents were invited to create spring buttons, picture frames and decorated flowerpots complete with soil and seeds. Others were the social butterflies, they served the refreshments, sat and talked with residents and enticed them to do a little swinging to the music. I am really enjoying the day, and hoping to get in some dancing, said fellow member Dan Bennette. That he did, for seated right there beside him was Ruth Bechard who was just full of pep. He no more than asked when she held her hands out to the handsome young fellow, as she called him. I cant really get up and dance, she said from her wheelchair. Thats okay, Bennette said as he bent down closer and got a groove on with Bechard. I think some of these other ladies are getting jealous, he joked. The golden smile on Bechards face said it all.
