Held at the parking lot next to the facility, seniors and staffers participated in various games and activities such as volleyball, bowling, and basketball. Apprehension was nowhere to be found on the traditionally superstitious Friday the 13th but happiness was abundant. The vibrant atmosphere and smiles outshined the neon green t-shirts worn by those in attendance. Music, dance and most importantly, a good time, was had by all.
