In the season of things that go bump in the night, Ivy Hall Nursing Home has decorated for Halloween with a variety of festive pumpkins.

Each year, Ivy Hall decorates their front steps and the grounds around the facility with jack o’lanterns, painted pumpkins, and other Halloween decorations.

Some of the pumpkins are carved and decorated by the residents at Ivy Hall. Staff members also join in the fun by showing their creativity with the pumpkins. Local businesses, community members, and students at local schools also take part in the event by bringing their pumpkins to Ivy Hall to add to the display or by donating pumpkins for the residents to decorate.
