Morning Pointe is a proud sponsor of the Samaritan Center in Ooltewah, TN. Every year, our local communities collect toys during the entire month of November. Each community fills a barrell with toys and needed items for families in our area. The families are able to "shop" at the Samaritan Center and purchase items for their children, who might otherwise not have a Christmas. Thanks to our residents and family members, Residents are working with the Chattanooga Food Bank Residents worked with the Chattanooga Food Bank helping to decorate food bags for area children. During December, the children who received bagged meals, received them in decorated holiday bags. The residents partnered up with students from Chattanooga Christian School to decorate 250 festive bags for the holiday season, using stickers, markers and paints. JANUARY BIRTHDAYS!

Cody Beatty, a Certified Nursing Assistant at Morning Pointe Ridge, KY won Morning Pointe Recognizes the best in the field Visitors Daniel Rardin Daniel opened his own business in 1954 born in Athens, Ohio May 17, 1921 Daniel Rardin grew up in Athens, Ohio, where he was born in May of 1921. Just out of the Army, he was set up on a blind date where he met Maida Cooke. They married in June of 1946, after dating for about a year. Daniel and Maida have three children; Rodney, Michael and Dale. They also have five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Daniel was working for Abbott Laboratories in North Chicago, IL when he was offered a job in Chattanooga at Cutter Laboratories. He was the supervisor over Quality Control. He and his family moved to Chattanooga in 1951. After a few years at Cutter, he decided that he needed to make a change. Learning that Cutter may be bought out, he decided that he needed to leave. That is when he went into business for himself, opening a rental equipment store, Chattanooga Rent All Store. That was the best decision he could have made because about five years later, Cutter, in fact, closed. He ran the store for 60 years and has only been retired for the last three years. The store is still in business today and is run by his son. Some of Daniel’s hobbies are gardening and dancing. He and his wife danced for nearly 20 years, taking many classes learning square dancing, line dancing and ballroom dancing. Daniel will tell you that his favorite is square dancing. They only quit dancing about five years ago. Ramona Madaris Handmade Cards Leona Fast Weekly Bible Study Natalie Walker The Nutcracker Daniel and Maida married June 1946 Daniel also enjoys traveling and played basketball in high school. If asked, he will tell you that owning his own business is one of his greatest accomplishments. His wife agrees!
