St. Johnland Residents donned a cap and gown and rolled down the aisle to celebrate the conclusion of a nine month in house Adult Education program developed by the Nursing Center’s Recreation Therapy staff. Residents voted on topics of interest and staff created course outlines to ensure fun and interactive ways for the “senior” students to continue learning and participate! Course content included TV Shows of Yesteryear, Famous Landmarks, History Trivia, Holiday Traditions, and Famous People. Family, friends and staff were invited to the hour long ceremony that acknowledged each of the graduates with a diploma, speeches were heard from the Salutatorian & Valedictorian and the celebration concluded with balloons in air instead of caps flying in the air. A festive reception of cake and punch followed.
