Menorah Manor Planning Paid Off During Hurricane Irma
Menorah Manor
(St. Petersburg, FL)
Reprinted from the Tampa Bay Times, 9/20/17
Doris Rosenblatt and her husband, Frank, have lived in Florida all of their lives, so they know about hurricanes.
Back in 1985, they evacuated from their Madeira Beach condo to Davis Islands and then to a sturdy, family-owned warehouse to take shelter from Hurricane Elena. When Irma threatened this year, they were unfazed.
The Rosenblatts - she is 90, and he is 94 - now live at Menorah Manor, a nursing home and assisted living facility in St. Petersburg.
