Progress Energy donates a new bus to local seniors – plus a tour of the new hospital

The bus will be used so residents can visit locations they would not be able to go without it.  All of the bus outings will be free of charge for residents of the Residential Care Facility.

The bus will have the ability to accept residents who use wheelchairs and those who can walk onto the bus.  The plan is to have the bus on site and ready for use when the new Hospital and Residential Care Facility opens in June.

After the presentation, representatives from Progress Energy and members of the media were given a brief tour of the new facility.  You can see those pictures below.
