Tootsie Gish, SCNA, recognized the one-year anniversary of her exercise program at Carrico Hall last week. Since her return from Botswana, Tootsie has worked with residents of the Nazareth Motherhouse and Carrico Hall to help them maintain strength, stamina and balance. A group gathers in the community room at Carrico Hall and a number of Sisters meet in the “Nazercise” room to use exercise equipment each week.

The group has formed a supportive bond and encourage one another, as they laugh and tease. Tootsie says this is “the joy of my life now”.
