(Photos contributed) PruittHealth-Bethany resident, Edna Grace Royal, was flying high Feb. 22nd when she enjoyed a hot air balloon ride in Statesboro!

Mrs. Royal enjoyed the ride as part of a “Committed to Caring” project. The organization endeavors to make a dream come true for a resident. She was accompanied by PruittHealth staff, family and friends.

We went up over 2,000 feet above the clouds and she could not believe that she was getting to do this. It was truly an amazing experience for her. Grace is well known throughout the Jenkins county community and had worked for Jockey International for 35 years. She was extremely emotional about being able to go up in the balloon and be with her family and friends.

A lady from Statesboro who did not know Grace saw the balloon in the air and took a picture and had a canvas made of it after seeing it on the news. She came and visited with her and brought her plants. It’s things like this that really make you appreciate things and realize how people care about one another.

On Feb. 14th, Valentine’s Day, residents enjoyed a performance by the Jenkins County Middle/High School band.

It was really an amazing performance. They did a spectacular job. The residents loved seeing the instruments being played so up close and they could hear them like they have never before. They really enjoyed and appreciate them taking time to come and play for them.

Come visit us at PruittHealth-Bethany and join in on all the fun!
