To Whom It May Concern ...
I have known Alida Rubin for many years; familiar with her assets, talents, and creativity. So, I was not surprised when she approached me as an Image Consultant, volunteering her services to give my residents an opportunity to be a "Queen for a Day".
The anticipation was electric; ladies lined up to have a makeover and professional accessorizing tips. These were nursing home women that are often overlooked by the community and that they were offered an opportunity to feel viable again, and take pride in their appearance provided a spirit that no discipline would be able to match.
I am grateful to Mrs. Rubin in her commitment to help others to live their lives to the fullest.
