Manor contestants in Top Talent

Two people from Lake Wildwood Manor are competing in the upcoming Nevada County’s Top Talent, a talent show and fundraiser that supports student music programs in Nevada County.

Helen Rogers and her caregiver, Mary “Shoneay” Love, will be singing together at 7 p.m. Oct. 9 at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building, 255 S. Church St., Grass Valley.

Rogers is 91; Love, also the administrator of the facility, has more than 25 years experience in care giving and is one of Rogers’ “devoted caregivers,” Family Administrator Wilfried Wietstock said.

“Helen’s passion for living to the fullest is amazing,” Wietstock added. “She can be an inspiration for many senior adults.”

The duo is trying to make it to the Grand Finale on Oct. 23 – their chance to win the People’s Choice Award.

Lake Wildwood Manor provides 24-hour care to seniors who need special care and supervision. It is at 17802 Silver Pine Drive, Penn Valley; contact (530) 432-7788 or visit http://www.LakeWildwoodManor. com for more information.
