Morning Pointe Assisted Living Facility Celebrates Reopening after Easter Tornadoes
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn (WDEF) – It’s been a little over a year since the tornadoes ripped through our community on Easter Sunday.
Morning Pointe assisted living community was one of the many buildings destroyed.
Today, community members, local officials , first responders and residents of morning pointe celebrated the grand reopening of their facility.
The event has several speakers sharing their experiences from that night and how far they have come.
“There were 7 or 8 people in a circle and they had big signs saying welcome home and I just cried. It was wonderful,” says Louise Hayes, Resident at Morning Pointe.
Morning Pointe is hoping their lantern facility for Alzheimer’s will be reopened later this summer.
