The Friends of Sunny Hill is a group devoted to providing items to enhance the lives of residents of the county-owned nursing home that cannot be accommodated in the county budget.
Currently, the group is raising money for a wheelchair-accessible bus to take residents to community events. The replacement bus will be the third the organization has purchased for the nursing home.
