Will leave Ms. Holloway’s home Saturday, March 31 at 9:00am. We will be flying kites, I have them, call me. Please be on time. We need help parents getting the boys to Buffalo. 32 boys will not fit in two cars. Thank you, L. Holloway.

Spring came in with a bang at LaFayette Nursing Home, beginning Friday night with a St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. The residents enjoyed an evening of entertainment courtesy of the Vagabond Travelers Band from the Valley. They sang and played beautiful music and even got a few residents to “shake a leg”.

If these wonderful people could know how much the residents and staff enjoyed their entertainment, they would know that their evening was worthwhile.

Following the singing and dancing, there was a St. Patrick’s Party with green cake and ice cream along with green punch. Everyone including visitors and staff had a grand time.
