Events at Gray Birch
Residents and staff at Gray Birch have been doing some fun activities this summer.
With raised beds, residents have planted vegetables and flowers. They've cared for the gardens and are getting some vegetables ready for picking!
Gray Birch enjoys a private spot in Smithfield thanks to the generosity of a local landowner who allows them to go fishing on their property. The pond has plenty of bass, much to the delight of residents!
Thank you to Girl Scout Troop #465, which donated cookies and cards. The residents made some crafts in return to thank the girls.
We've also been able to restart outside entertainment on Thursday mornings.
We thank our families and community members who have supported our residents and help us bring great activities to those we care for!
