HASTINGS, N.E. - After serving beverages from a folding table, Good Samaritan Hastings Village’s Community Center Director, Ashley Fitzgerald, knew it was time for a change.
“I need something nicer. I need a bar that can set the mood, the atmosphere, that people can have fun using, and coming up to and kind of feeling like they’re at a bar. Somewhere to celebrate,” Fitzgerald said.
So she enlisted the help of four men, who work in the woodshop on the campus. For independent living resident Ken Robinson, it was the camaraderie of working with friends that he really enjoyed.
“Took [the bar] apart a couple times and put it back together. It was a labor of fun and the guys over here helped me quite a bit,” Robinson said.
