Morning Breeze residents show Pirate Pride

GREENSBURG – Members of the Greensburg Pirates cheerleading squad visited Morning Breeze Retirement Community Friday to help residents there celebrate Pirate Pride as the semi-state game looms closer.

The Pirates head to Richmond today to battle for the 3A Semi-State Championship title, with the game starting at 4 p.m. Many people throughout the Tree City will be waiting with bated breath to hear the outcome of the game, and the residents of Morning Breeze are definitely included.

The Daily News spoke with Morning Breeze Community Liaison Cheryl Johnson to learn more about the visit. Johnson said she invited the cheerleaders to come and they were more than happy to visit Morning Breeze to boost the residents’ Pirate Pride.

Johnson said the residents enjoyed the visit because they are unable to attend the games, but still want to show their immense pride in the local basketball team. According to Johnson, many residents cheered right along with the cheerleaders.

Residents had blue-and-white pompoms to use to cheer along and blue carnations and white carnations decorated the facility. Morning Breeze also celebrated with blue-and-white Long John donuts from Cornerstone Bakery, Johnson said.

“The residents enjoyed the cheerleaders coming out to Morning Breeze because they’re not ever able to go watch the Pirates themselves and the cheerleaders’ presence made them feel like they’re supporting the team,” Johnson told the Daily News.

In addition to the pompoms, carnations and donuts, Morning Breeze showed their Pirate Pride with Pirates-themed window art and a curio cabinet filled with Pirates memorabilia. At least one of the cheers was broadcast on the local radio station, with both cheerleaders and Morning Breeze residents showing their Pirate Pride.

“We want to thank the cheerleaders for coming to Morning Breeze to share their Pirate Pride with our residents,” Johnson said.

The residents at Morning Breeze offer their best wishes to the Pirates as they travel the road to (hopefully) another championship title.
