A Glimpse of Life at Redstone: The 2014 Parade

The Queen and King of the Parade
This year's annual parade at our Greensburg campus had to be canceled due to inclement weather, but that did not stop us from having fun! Although there were no motorcycles, marching bands, or twirlers, there was still a lot of fun. There was food, entertainment, clowns, the crowning of the King and Queen, and most importantly the opportunity to invite residents, staff, family, and friends into our community to have a good time and enjoy each other's company!

As attendees arrived, they stopped to see the clown who was making balloon hats. Those who were hungry picked up a hot dog, watermelon, or another snack from the buffet. Then, everyone filtered into the Chapel to watch Square Dancers perform. Then the excitement continued to build as this year's King and Queen were announced. Even though there was no parade, the King and Queen still had to be crowned! This year's King was resident Joe Notovich, and the Queen was resident Helen Schalcosky. They both were enjoying the spotlight and were smiling from ear to ear! The smell of fresh popped popcorn and laughter filled the air for the evening that will long be remembered.

It's nice know that even if the parade cannot happen in the traditional sense, everyone can still enjoy themselves. We can't wait till next year!
