Small community of Echo Ridge makes big impact

RAPID CITY, S.D. - For more than a year, the people of Good Samaritan Society - Echo Ridge Independent Living have been making scarves. Currently, they have about 24 scarves that will be placed on the downtown statues.

“Some of us found out that we have similar interest in knitting, crocheting, and other crafts. We decided that it would be fun to get together, sit for an hour or so in the afternoon, chat, and make them. We’ve been making all these scarves to put on the presidents,” said Jan Albright, who lives at Echo Ridge.

“These ladies are great about donating to other organizations, and they’re really just an independent group here at Echo Ridge, which is an independent living apartment,” said Angela Weiderich, senior living manager at Echo Ridge.
