Halcyon House Leadership, this past Tuesday, April 24, chose to celebrate and honor the heartbeat of the organization ? our volunteers! Executive Director Chris Marshall kicked off the program with thanking the volunteers for so graciously sharing their time and talents. Chris then entertained the volunteers with her beautiful piano playing. The Halcyon House dietary team prepared a delicious breakfast casserole, with a fresh fruit cup, pastry and coffee or juice to drink. Halcyon House Activities Director Carole Martins planted succulents in cute, colorful pots to give away to the volunteers. The volunteers also received a gift certificate to the Applewood Bistro as a thank-you for all of their hard work and time.

On Friday, April 20, the Washington FFA chapter brought in an assortment of baby animals to share with the residents as a part of celebrating FFA week. Everyone enjoyed the array of animals that were a part of their petting zoo. The FFA members shared their pet baby pigs, rabbits, chickens, goats, sheep, ferret, dogs, and cats. Everyone had a chance to pet the soft and cuddly little animals. Halcyon House would like to thank Trent Steinhart, FFA Adviser, for bringing this wonderful group of FFA members and their pets.
