    Kari Rust, 14, hugged Lillian Cannon during the Creative Cooking class Wednesday at Northwood Retirement Community in Jasper. Rust, a Dubois Middle School student, volunteered at the center because winter weather canceled classes throughout the area. Rust has been volunteering at Northwood for three years. Darlene Francone led the cooking class Wednesday as participants made Coconut Sour Cream Dream Cake in honor of Carol Breitweiser, who died late last month. “This is her recipe, so we are making it for her,” Northwood activity director Shirley Harter said. “This is a cooking lesson, but we also reminisce about how things used to be,” Francone added.
