THE GOOD SAMARITAN
In the Gospel according to St.Luke, 10: 33 "But a Certain Samaritan as he journeyed, came where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion on him," That is what this article is about.
A Man who is a good Samaritan, and has compassion for his fellow man, is Mr. Grover P. Nutt. Mr. Nutt retired as a postmaster here Aug 1, 1961, after donating 32 years of his life to what I consider a dedication to his job and the people of Waverly and the community he served.
Sunset Manor was conceived in July 1975, and the City Council and then Mayor, Paul Bowersox declared its intention to issue Industrial Revenue Bonds in the approximate sum of $500,000.00 to finance the construction of the 50 bed nursing home in Waverly.
This was all done with the encouragement of many citizens of Waverly, one of whom was Mr. Grover P Nutt.
Mr. Nutt gave of his time and energy to this home, and through his efforts and those of many other citizens of this community, it was finally approved and constructed and opened on Mar 4, 1977. This could not have been accomplished without all the support we, the builders received from the people who supported this project. Mr. Nutt has always believed in this home and has contributed with his support since its conception. He continues, even though he is now living with his son in Costa Mesa, California to be interested in the success of this home and of those residents who reside here. He has made financial contributions for activities, a sign for the home and many others too numerous to mention, especially at Christmas time with his gifts of fruit and assorted gifts for residents. For this, we here at Sunset Manor are truly grateful. Mr. Nutt is now 88 years of age and resided here in Waverly for 74 years.
When Mr. Nutt makes a gift to the home, he writes, " I hope you can make some old folks happy," Well, Mr. Nutt, you truly have, and God bless you and grant you a longer and happy life in the California sunshine. We here in Waverly wish you well.
