Trick-or-Treat night was a huge success thanks to all the staff and residents who helped out; and to all the children who came out to enjoy free candy. The residents had a wonderful time passing out candy and seeing all the different costumes that the children were wearing this year as they wondered our halls.
The sun was shining bright on this wonderful day. The tents were up and the tables were set. Families filled the seats. I think we may need to go a little bit bigger next year. Musical entertainment was provided this year by Matt Young. Jimmy T. Clown ventured throughout doing magic tricks and balloon art. The kitchen provided great food and the Activity department served it.
Like any Baby-Boomer born in the 50's, Dandy Don grew up following the many adventures of his western heroes on Saturday morning TV. Many of hours were spent in front of their black and white TV watching Roy Rogers,Dale Evans, Hop along Cassidy, Gene Autry and of course Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger. He was given a guitar from his older brother and he began to play. Dandy Don began his solo career in 2009.
