Picking Pumpkins with Grandfriends

Fifth-grade students from Idle Hour Elementary School recently paid their “Grandfriends” at The Arbors Assisted Living at Bohemia a visit in full costume for some Halloween-themed fun and games.

Upon arriving, the students joined the residents around the recreation room for a few rounds of Bingo, in which the winners were rewarded with candy and a round of applause from those in attendance. Additionally, they were able to join one another in the courtyard to pick their very own pumpkin to take home and decorate, courtesy of staff at the Arbors. 

Before leaving, the fifth-graders visited the facility’s memory wall, as they reminisced on all of the good times they had with their “Grandfriends” since beginning their trips to The Arbors when they were in the first grade. The memory wall consists of photographs chronicling the many visits that district students made to The Arbors Assisted Living Facility at Bohemia throughout the years.
