Twilight Wish Foundation recently granted the wish of John Kennard, a resident of Luther Woods Nursing and Rehabiliation Center in Hatboro. Kennard, 92, wished to meet his favorite meteorologist, Adam Joseph of WPVI-Channel 6 in Philadelphia.
Kennard served in the Navy during World War II. After his honorable discharge in 1948, he enlisted in the Coast Guard Auxiliary, serving for more than 27 years. He decided to share his love of the weather and became certified in the Coast Guard Auxiliary, teaching classes on the weather for many years. Although now retired and living at Luther Woods, Kennard keeps busy and broadcasts the weather to the other residents every morning over the intercom. Kennard has been a fan of Joseph’s for years and watches him do the weather every day. His wish to meet Adam Joseph, talk to him about the weather and their shared love of meteorology and watch him do the weather broadcast was granted on August 23rd.
Not only did Kennard get to meet Joseph, but was given a tour of the WPVI studios. He also watched Joseph and the rest of the Action News team do the 4 p.m. broadcast and met Brian Taff, Alicia Vitarelli and Sharri Williams. Thank you to everyone at WPVI for making this special wish come true for such a deserving man!
