BHS, Continental Manor team up


Blanchester High School art students and residents from Continental Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center had fun working together to create ceramic trinket boxes. Herman Liming, Korea Veteran and Class of 1949 Blanchester High School, was among residents in attendance. Activity Director Lisa Beach said she was a little surprised at the excitement Herman showed in looking forward to the outing. “He even signed up twice on the list of those wanting to go,” Beach said, and once she saw Herman’s box, it all made sense. “Class of 1949 BHS. This was his school, this was a chance to go back where he had graduated,” she said. “It was a great experience for both the students and the residents. The students asked the residents questions about their past, and listened intently to what they had to say.”
