SPRING DIPPER in West Plains delivered cups of ice cream on Friday to Pleasant Valley Manor and NHC HealthCare nursing homes for residents and employees. “It was great ice cream,” said Pleasant Valley Manor resident Peggy Hill. “I can’t remember the last time I had ice cream that good.” Hill, who got chocolate ice cream, added it was a real treat and a nice distraction from the isolation that has followed the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults 65 years or older are at higher risk of severe illness and are advised limited contact to avoid potential exposure to the coronavirus. The ice cream for Pleasant Valley was purchased by Ruthi Holmes and Paula England, and Spring Dipper owner Nadine Enlow said she donated ice cream to NHC free of charge.
