The Polar Vortex hit the Johnstown, Pa., area hard and heavy in early February, causing
schools to close. Sara Levander and Lauren Lamonica both wanted to do something helpful with their time off. Sara is the daughter of Amy Levander, LSW at Conemaugh Regional
Hospice, and Lauren is one of her best friends. The girls decided to make some beautiful
Valentine’s Day bouquets for the hospice patients served by the Johnstown agency. Lauren’s mom, Donna Lamonica, also pitched in and helped with cookie boxes for patients.

Thanks to Sara, Lauren, and Donna for taking the time to make these wonderful Valentine’s
Day treats for the Conemaugh patients. Their unselfish service to others is inspiring to us all.
