Annual Fall Festival

 

What better way to celebrate the cooler weather, changing leaves and the harvest season than at our Fourth Annual Fall Festival!  Residents, staff, and community members attended an array of activities hosted at the Home.  The autumn season doesn’t merely suggest Halloween happenings; this time of year is also ripe for colorful festivals focused on everything from fried dough to cider, pumpkins and other delectable treats!  AND – because of the generous pumpkin donations from local businesses, our residents and many young visitors selected a personal pumpkin to paint and decorate featuring characters like Elmo and witches with yarn hair and google eyes spattered with a rainbow of colors.  To add to the excitement, there was face-painting, bowling, storytelling of “The Great Pumpkin” and a visit from the barn-yard animals, which included baby chicks, goats, bunnies!  Let’s not forget the delicious desserts presented from our Dietary Department.  It was a splendid day for all.
