Fun / community was Spooktacular theme

Posted on 20 November 2017 by calvin

Children, families, and tenants all turned out on Oct. 28 for the 4th Annual Spooktacular Halloween Open House at Minnehaha Senior Living and Providence Place Senior Living, 37th St. and 23rd Ave. Many families turned up in costumes (photo right provided) and played the games which included a fishing booth, a duck pond, pumpkin bowling, and pumpkin golf. There were also themed costumes (one family had a circus theme with a ringmaster, a lion who jumped through a hoop, a lion trainer, a strong man, an acrobat, and a popcorn vendor). The “circus” family walked through the facility entertaining tenants and surprised them with a lion act (a child dressed up as a lion jumped through a hoop that a “lion trainer” was holding).

There was a shadow room, a haunted house, craft rooms with pumpkin painting and door hanger crafts, games, and cookies and cider for all who attended.

“Our tenants and residents got a big kick out of seeing the children in all of their creative costumes! Lots of our tenant’s grandchildren turned out, and lots of neighborhood kids turned out to show off their Halloween costumes. One highlight was when people oohed and awed when they saw a giant T’Rex dinosaur (photo left provided) enter the doors of Minnehaha. They were also delighted to see babies dressed up as unicorns, owls, pumpkins, and other fun costumes. We had over sixty children and their families walk through our doors and celebrate with our tenants this year.” said Molly Blomgren, Community Life Director.

It was also the kick off for their annual food drive for the area food shelf. Food shelf donations are being accepted up until Thanksgiving at both facilities.
