MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – What was supposed to be just another ride Thursday turned into a celebration and serenade for one local traveler.
The Independent Transportation Network Memphis celebrated Ms. Stella Day as the 10,000th rider of its ride share service. To honor her, the organization got a special guest from Opera Memphis, one from St. Luke United Methodist Church, and a volunteer driver to serenade her.
Ms. Day is a long-time member of the service and says the group has been very important to her.
“Well, it’s just a big help in that it gets me around when I need to be somewhere and family can’t do everything,” said Day.
“Our program is so unique because we take them where-ever they want or need to go. But it helps them to stay independent and to be on their own somewhat,” said Tommie Cervetti, President, ITN Memphis.
ITN Memphis has been giving rides to seniors in the Mid-South since 2014.
