Summer Meadows Got Talent competition 'was a blast'

LONGVIEW, Texas - Summer Meadows Nursing Home in Longview residents had quite the experience on Friday when they were given a talent show. 

The "Got talent" show consisted of 5 acts performed by staff members. Summer Meadows staff member Tiffanii Barnes said, "It gets them excited to dance in their chair or tap their feet and that helps us get in a good mood too."

Executive director Tana Pierce said, "it puts joy in my heart to give them a good time."

The talent was judged by a panel with some familiar faces such as Gregg County sheriff Maxey Cerliano.

"How could you not have fun at an event like this? It's just a great opportunity to get out and interact with some of the older people in our community," said Cerliano. 

The smile that it puts on their face is what police chief Mike Bishop said is most important.

"It's fun it's good to see them having a good time to be a part of that and to judge the talent show and just to be a part of it is a good thing," said Bishop. 

After the show was finished, Summer Meadow's resident Pauline Downing said, "I didn't have a favorite part, I liked all of it." 

Summer Meadow's staff member Tifanii Barnes was announced the winner and after receiving the prize of $100 she said, "It was a lot of fun I love doing things for the residents."

However, the real winners were the residents and that's what Friday was all about.

Downing said, "I had a blast."
