Balloon Launch!

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

In honor of National Nursing Home Week (NNHW), which is May 13-18, the Exceptional Living Center of Brazil had a balloon launch for its residents and staff. The theme for this year is "Celebrating the Journey." Mayor Brian Wyndham briefly spoke with the residents before counting down to release the balloons. Each balloon holds a resident's name, address and phone number inside, so whoever finds the balloon has the opportunity to communicate with the residents.

When are people going to realize that although the balloons are pretty,releasing them into the air is so bad for our environment. ARGH!

addresing comment from Moon., I am sorry you feel the way you do, however there are alot worse things that are released into our enviroment. If you look at the picture the residents are the one's who enjoy and look forward to the launch every year. Thank you Mayor Wyndham for participating and being envolved with our seniors.
