For programming we have to do a service program each semester. We always find it hard to get residents to come to these. We decided to have a “Pot Party” in the fall and didn’t tell our residents what it would entail. A lot of them were so curious that they ended up coming. We had purchased a number of small planting pots and a package of seeds. The residents were able to decorate the pots and plant the seeds. We then took the finished pots to a local nursing home for the residents.
