The Wiltshire House at Merakey AVS in Western PA is ready for the holidays!
Merakey AVS participants Camillo and Michael visited the Library of Accessible Media for Pennsylvanians in Pittsburgh to explore a Somatosensory “Relating to the Senses” art exhibit. The tactile art show featured 14 different works by local artists. Michael and Camillo explored each piece through touch, while also using headphones to hear a recorded statement from the artist describing the details of their work and meaning behind it. Michael commented his favorite piece was the bear, and Camillo said his favorite was the woman holding the bouquet. LAMP also includes large-print items, braille books, and audio books to provide for those with low vision or total blindness. Both gentlemen expressed that they enjoyed the exhibit.
The ladies from Ewings Mill at Merakey AVS spent a fun afternoon at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh.
On Wednesday, November 29, Slippery Rock Program Instructor Mary Loss and Program Aide Cindy Solman hosted a Black and White party in their area. Everything was black and white, including the food, décor, and attire. Everyone had fun decorating the area for the occasion. A menu of various finger sandwiches, hot chocolate cake, Oreos, and peppermint patties was enjoyed by all. Chocolate milk and white milk were the beverages of choice.
