MEET "LUCY THE GOOSE"
|Here at the Senior Center, "Lucy The Goose" is a comforting reminder and given with friendship and support. The first flock of Lucys were created with love by Yolanda Bravo Mendieta of Diriamba, Nicaragua. The parable that best describes their inspiration for Lucy is expressed in Dr. Harry Clarke Noyes' writing "Sense of a Goose".|
