ROCKWELL, Iowa – Each month, KIMT and our Giving Your Best partners, Diamond Jo Casino and First Citizens Bank, recognize someone who goes above and beyond to give back to their community.
Lynnea Bosch Smith is our November Giving Your Best Volunteer of the Month.
She spends much of her time volunteering at the Rockwell Community Nursing Home.
“Well I just come out in the afternoons and if we’re playing cards or if we’re serving coffee or cookies. Or I just come out and enjoy the people,” she said.
“She’s always here giving such joy and excitement to the residents,” said Sarah Kobliska, who works at the nursing home and nominated Lynnea for the award.
It’s clear that Lynnea’s simple acts of kindness have a big impact on the residents.
“They want to visit with about anybody, and so she comes in and she knows what’s going on in the community. So she let’s them know what’s happening in church and at the school and all that,” Kobliska said.
“I think it’s great. Thank you, I appreciate it,” said Lynnea.
