GOOD SHEPHERD BUBBLE GUM MAN

gsgum1

This is a picture of our “Bubble Gum Man”, Clarence Gooslin.  Clarence’s wife, Shirley, has been a resident at Good Shepherd Community Nursing Center since 2005.  He visits her at least twice a day.  During each visit, he always has pockets full of bubble gum which he gives to the staff and residents.  Keep in mind, he does this daily and offers gum to everyone he sees.  We asked Clarence how much gum he purchases a week and he stated around eight bags a week (80 pieces per bag) which equals 640 pieces a week and 23,040 a year.  Clarence is a dedicated visitor and has become a part of our family.
