During the warmer months the Sisters often go outdoors and walk the path in the back yard. As the weather cools, a stalwart group perseveres in getting outside at least one day a week. "Fresh Air Friday" was created by our head nurse. Snacks are provided for any Sisters who want to join this group. (left)
