Lori Limoges and Marcella Cummings are one of our longest meeting matches in the LSS Better Together Program. Lori and Marcella have been matched for three years and seven months. These ladies know Sioux Falls well and have both been living in the area for over 30 years. They never have issues finding fun things to do together, even if it is just exploring one of their favorite stores, Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
Marcella joined Better Together because she needed a companion. Lori is also an LSS Everyday Heroes mentor to a local middle school student and found out about Better Together when it first started. Lori is retired and felt like the program would be a good fit for her so she applied as a volunteer.
Together, Lori and Marcella have attended a variety of activities including: shopping, attending shows at the Orpheum and Washington Pavilion, visiting the Zoo, the Falls and the Butterfly House, Better Together events, Trolley rides, and movies. Their favorite activities are shopping, seeing plays the Orpheum, and the Trolley ride.
At LSS, we are so thankful for volunteers like Lori! She gives of herself and Marcella and her mentoring student are always so happy to see her and both know beyond a doubt that she cares about them.
