Dream Come True
Our dreams, hopes, and ambitions make us special as humans. These can be as modest as playing trumpet with the local band, or as elaborate as a hot air balloon ride! They are as unique and varied as our tenants themselves.
We get to know each tenant deeply as a vibrant individual, we learn what dreams spark joy in their lives -- and we make them happen!
A name is drawn each month to do one thing that you have always wanted to do that you have not yet accomplished. Only rule being the dream has to be realistic and within reason.
Our goal is to make at least one tenant's dream come true each month!
Below are some of the dreams we have made come true:
Roy Smith use to have his own private airplane and fly it himself. His dream was to fly in an airplane again!
Leona Hutton's dream was to ride on a train and eat lobster for the first time. She rode on a train at Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad & Museum and enjoyed lobster at the Red Lobster in Ames, Iowa. Catherine Shelton Schroeder (our host on the train) bought Leona a puzzle as she loves to do puzzles. Thank you, Catherine, for helping to make our tenants' day special!
Marilyn Hanna's dream was to attend a Hawkeye Women's Basketball game. She attended an Iowa Hawkeye Women's Basketball vs. Nebraska at Carver Hawkeye Arena on January 27.This was VERY special to Marilyn as she cried happy tears several times. We want to give a huge thank you to Denise and Rick Sieck for making this Dream go smoothly!
