February 14th isn’t just for sweethearts at Ripley Crossing. It is a day fit for a King and Queen. The residents participated in the crowning of the facilities Valentine’s Day royalty. To become The King and The Queen is about a month process of penny voting from family members, friends and staff. At the end of the cycle the cups are picked up and the money is tallied up to reveal who has the most monetary votes. The residents gathered into the community room for the celebration and enjoyed juice and sweets. This year’s Valentine Queen is Nancy Ankenman and will reign for one year with Valentine King, Doyle Ison. They both received flowers and were draped in red velvet robes, he was adorned with a fully lined crown and she was adorned with a stunning jeweled tiara.
