BUMP!!!

Hi Tinki

This year for Cinco De Mayo I decorated our nursing facility with red, green, and white balloons and I put donkey pinata centerpieces on the tables in the dining room. We played Mexican picture bingo "lottery" and after bingo I served chips, salsa, and apple cider. I do have to say our residents had a very fun day.
