For this year’s St. Patrick’s Day, the Inn at Belden Village had our residents come together to enjoy some minty green Shamrock Shakes – what could be a better way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day?
About 40 residents showed up and we got to talking about who had Irish ancestry. That led to a conversation about everyone’s ancestral backgrounds and it was a great way for the residents to get to know a little more about each other. Some residents even had funny stories to share about Irish relatives and other stories from their past.
A party at the Inn at Belden Village is never a party without a little music! Irish and folk music was played on the accordion by Diane DeGasperis, which the residents loved and couldn’t resist getting up to dance. Who knew so many of them know Irish dancing!
Of course most everyone was wearing green, even if it was just a little splash with an accessory. No one wanted to get pinched by a little leprechaun!
