Out For A Summer Drive: Age Not Stopping Villa Residents From Getting Up On Two Wheels

Posted 5/28/2013

 Enjoying life’s journey is what it’s all about at Schowalter Villa.

Two of the Villa’s adventure-seeking, wheelchair-bound healthcare residents, Loren Cubbage and Yeteve Middleton, recently fulfilled their wishes to enjoy an exciting journey of their own.

One day as Cubbage wheeled past Neighborhood Nurse Manager Jeff Richta’s office and spied a motorcycle photograph on a shelf, he asked, “Is that your bike?”

“No, but I do have one,” Richta replied. “I’ll bring it and show it to you when the weather warms up.”

And he did.

As soon as Cubbage saw Richta’s Honda VTX 1800R, he asked, “Is it possible for me to have a ride?”

“I’ll do some checking and see,” Richta replied.
