She served healthy snacks and drinks to the “Sequoia Stars” and gave each individual a certificate of achievement. Terry Knechtel, who teaches the Thursday class, also received a wheeled tote bag and a beautiful flower arrangement. The three residents with the best attendance records,, Mary Rich, Betty Comerzan and Hattie Russell, also received tote bags. “They have worked hard all year, and enjoyed a chance to relax and enjoy!” said Katherine Redies, Sequoia’s administrative assistant.
