Poet Honored in Style

In honor of poet, historian, author Russell “Rusty” Bourne, the Lifelong activity room filled to capacity with an appreciative audience of more than 60 people on April 8. For about an hour, applause, and hushed, attentive silence alternated with the expressive voices of the poet and his friends as they read selected pieces of their work. Poet Laureate Jack Hopper organized this wonderful event that evoked tears, laughter, memories and gave the attendees the opportunity to express their affection and respect for Russell Bourne, his work, and his life.
