Ruth H. is the Holiday Spirit Superhero of Malabar. Ruth has taken the initiative to ensure that the holiday spirit is present at Malabar even though it is often difficult to have decorations present in the home, she makes an effort to ensure that some decorations make an appearance for the special occasions.Ruth has made wreaths for the various holidays and seasons to be hung outside the home and used in planters on porch to bring the holidays to life with decorations or flowers. This past year, Ruth made Christmas especially joyous for the supported individuals and staff at Malabar. She was able to get a Christmas tree and decorations donated from a local suppliers and she set the tree up outside the home on the porch and decorated the railing in garland. She recruited some help from two other little elves, Lisa R and Emma W. who spent one cool winter night setting up a wonderful display to ensure that the true spirit of Christmas was captured.
One of the individuals who lives at Malabar R.B. was captivated by the sight of the Christmas tree that next morning when he looked out the window and saw it. Ruth’s initiative to bring the holiday spirit to Malabar was captured in that one single smile!
