Every year in April, Tolland High School hosts the senior center's largest fundraiser, where local seniors and hired professionals participate in the Annual Senior Variety Show. For the first time in 31 years, the talent show is canceled due to the virus.
Weigand and Ellert also make sure to go the extra mile by celebrating their seniors' birthdays. They were unable to celebrate March because they were cut short.
According to Weigand and Ellert, although some of the seniors say they are healthy, something like this can take a toll on one's mental health. That is why they are taking the extra step to make these calls. The dedication of these two women is far beyond measurable. I could hear the amount of concern they had in their voices, but there was also some wisdom to be granted my way as well.
