Countryside home news
Countryside Adult Home residents are proud to let readers know that they won a spelling bee at Westmount May 14 and brought home a trophy.
During the busy month of May, the residents had a birthday celebration, enjoyed some scrap booking classes, had pets visit and a held bake sale. Also many trips were taken: a few trips to the Warren County Tourism Dept. to help staff prepare mailings to potential tourists, a county Seniors council recognition ceremony at Westmount, a tour of the new county water and soil service headquarters off Schroon River Rd., and two trips for shopping. A Memorial Day picnic was held, a karaoke night, and a Mother's Day tea - all at the home.
