Lila Virtue has been volunteering at Windemere for seven years, along with her sister Emma and her grandmother, Lois Virtue. Lois volunteers twice weekly throughout the year. Lila and Emma live in Virginia, outside Washington, D.C., and visit for two weeks every summer.

Lila recently celebrated her 14th birthday, and asked her friends to make donations to Windemere’s recreation department instead of bringing her a gift. Lila donated the check to the Windemere recreation department.

Lila also invited five Windemere residents to a lunch at the Farm Neck Cafe to celebrate her birthday. Her grandmother, Lois, donated a birthday cake for the luncheon.
