I included this as part of Happy Hour/Quiztime last Friday afternoon. It was amazing!! So many interesting stories. I was speechless and the residents were all interested in each others stories. It was so good I decided to include it with a slightly different group at the Monday afternoon High Tea, and it was just as successful. Thank you so much.
