All Hallow’s Eve, from which the name Halloween was originated, could have been called “All Children’s Eve” here! Around 225 children visited our home for the annual ritual of receiving treats. It was one of our busiest Halloween events in recent history. Many of our elders had the pleasure of giving out the treats. Among the children were residents’ grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each child was welcomed with sweet smiles and sweet treats. One elder said that a child wished her well and that she would get well soon!
The Albany Independent Baptist Church Ladies and Pastor Melvin Daniel delivered 52 lap quilts to the elders/residents Tuesday evening. (With a 52-bed capacity, this was enough for every elder under our roof.) They were made by the ladies of the church while teaching many how to sew. “This has been a wonderful blessing for us and we hope it brings much joy and comfort to those that received them.”
