A Day of Play at Menig

Menig Day of PlayThe Menig Extended Care Facility in Randolph celebrated a Day of Play on Thursday, May 17 in celebration of Older American’s Month.

The event was held at the urging of Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) Commissioner Dr. Susan Wehry, who sent two members of her staff, Will Rowe and Mary Woodruff, to join Menig nursing home residents, activities staff, volunteers and seventh-grade Community Connections class “buddies” from Randolph Union High School.

For their Day of Play, the Menig residents and visitors participated in a “scavenger hunt” that had them hugging trees, balancing things on their heads, wearing newspaper hats, forming a conga line by cars, posing by a flagpole and much more. The seventh graders then hung out with their Menig pals before heading back to class.
