PLATTSBURGH For the residents of Meadowbrook Healthcare, October has been a month of celebrations and a month to remember. On Oct. 20, residents enjoyed an Oktoberfest program with entertainment by the local duo The Castaways. Residents were able to sample food with a German flare and try beer tasting, as well as create German hats to wear. The festivities were complete with decorations in Germanys colors and a touch of the fall harvest season. Family and friends attended with residents for an afternoon of German delight. On Oct. 26, Meadowbrook residents, patients and their families also enjoyed a Halloween bash for all ages. The Halloween party included intergenerational activities for all including bobbing for apples, homemade applesauce making, seasonal arts and crafts, and pumpkin painting, among other activities. Many children were on hand to participate in the games and show off their Halloween best. Residents and patients also were in the spirit with many donning costumes.
