Bill M., 76, Linden, NJ

Bill Manhardt, 75, had his wish for a barbecue with entertainment at his nursing facility granted on Thursday, September 12th.  Manhardt, a longtime resident of Delaire Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Linden, NJ, is well known in the community for his patriotism and dedication to others. He is an elected member of the Union County Democratic Committee, a life member of the John Dawson Gilmary Shea Assembly of the Knights of Columbus where he has been Patriotic Chairman for over 20 years, and is a Notary Public. In addition, he is a member of the Moose Lodge in Linden, the Elizabeth-Linden Elks Lodge, and a lifetime member of the NRA. Despite his limited mobility and reliance on a wheelchair, Manhardt regularly hands out patriotic flyers he designs and prints himself at the shopping center across from his nursing facility. His wish was granted, thanks to the generosity of several donors.  Manhardt is pictured with his nominator and volunteer advocate, Jean Seals.
