It has been an exciting week at Pleasant View! During our devotional we talked about “Hope in the dark.” We read quite a few verses about seeking God when life gets dark and God will lead you in the right direction.

Andy Campbell played his guitar and sang some good Christian music. He even played a few that he has written. When Andy asked if he could wrap it up for the day Donna Perry was quick to shout, “No, keep going!” Thank you Andy for coming and playing for us! Thursday morning was a little chilly on the hill top but that didn’t stop us from going out and watching the Rock Port marching band. The kids marched up and down the road a few times and then came up closer to the deck and played some of their Lion King themed songs. The residents reminisced on their musical talents when they were younger. We thank the Rock Port marching band for your time and coming to visit us!

Friday we enjoyed a fall festival. Games were set up in the dining room. Residents enjoyed bobbing for apples, corn hole, washer toss, witch’s hat toss, and knockin’ over pumpkins. We had a variety of pumpkins outdoors so the residents could pick their own pumpkin at the patch. Farm2Fork set up their petting zoo and the residents loved petting all the animals! There were so many pictures captured with smiling faces while visiting with the animals. Deb Frushon stated, “It is nice to have animal therapy.” Thank you to everyone that helped make this festival possible for our residents, Farm2Fork for bringing your petting zoo to us, Mary Kahn for bringing us some hay bales, and Jeff and Paige Agnew and Waynie for the donation of the pumpkins!
