Staff took a few minutes from their normal duties on Wednesday, October 31, to celebrate Halloween. Here and there a witch, a pug, a fairy godmother, a deviled egg, and even a lady dragon went about their regular care duties most of the day.

A brief afternoon gathering in the Admissions Building featured tasty homemade holiday treats and the reading of three literary works entered in a contest.

Sally Wall, the Business Building receptionist (and lady dragon for a day), won the event with her poem about “DeeDee the Dragon’s First Halloween.”

Therapeutic Activities Director Allyson Moyer won the food contest with her “fileted face” made of prosciutto and cheese.

The appearance of a flock of turkey vultures in trees near the Admissions Office added an appropriate tone for the day.
