The Mount St. Joseph Association purchased adorable Halloween supplies for Day Training’s celebration on October 30. Residents decorated darling foam pumpkins with stickers and played Halloween Bingo. The Bingo cards and dry erase pens were individually wrapped and labeled so that they could be safely reused by the residents the next day in the cottages. Each resident received a pair of whimsical Halloween socks and a multi-colored Halloween necklace.
