At the beginning of this year, staff at Weskota Manor Avera  celebrated longtime volunteer Cecile Knight. As the calendar turned over to 2020, the date marked 18 years of Knight’s volunteer service at the nursing home. 

Knight has been volunteering for nearly a decade every Wednesday and Thursday in ministry. Every Wednesday afternoon, Knight  does Rosary with the Manor’s Catholic residents. She then helps Father with Mass every Thursday afternoon at the Manor. 

“Before Rosary and Mass, she arrives early to visit and sit with residents during afternoon activity,” said Samantha Miller, Activities Assistant at the Manor. “We are blessed and so thankful to have her volunteer so much of her time here at the Manor.”
