• Friday, May 18 – Luau Day and a southern rock, blues and country gospel show by the Jobe Family

We wish to thank all the groups who made Nursing Home Week extra special. We also acknowledge the Kelley’s Bridge Irish Band from Ironton that on April 26 filled the halls with jigs, reels and waltzes at our Spring Party, and the Tri-State Saints Alive Christian Choir that performed a rousing and uplifting show the day after Memorial Day, on Tuesday, May 29.
