We are in need of small stuffed animals and other prizes for Bingo. We wish to thank Claire Booke, Sandy Bennett and Jodie Eckies for the stuffed animals and other prizes for Bingo.

We greatly appreciate the continued support of our volunteers throughout the week. Anyone wanting to become a volunteer, please contact Tom Mansfield, Activity Director, at the facility.
