Channel 5 Meteorologist Ken Barlow Surprises Fan at New Harmony Care Center
New Harmony Care and Rehab Center’s resident Marlene Absey is a huge fan of channel 5′s meteorologist Ken Barlow, she watches him every morning! She tells everyone she “Just loves him and he’s such a doll” and how it was her dream to meet him some day. New Harmony Care Center’s Activity Director, Linda Bahneman, helped Marlene send a letter to him inviting to stop in for a visit. Little did she know, Ken called New Harmony Care Center on Wednesday morning to say he was stopping by to see Marlene! The staff was able to keep it a secret so she would be surprised, and she was to say the least. Marlene was so happy that Ken surprised her and was thrilled that he brought her a channel 5 shirt and signed a photo card. Marlene is still telling everyone that he came in for a visit just for her. Thank you Ken Barlow for making Marlene’s Christmas wish come true!
