Guthrie Skilled Nursing Unit and Personal Care Home residents attended an end of summer block party with a jungle theme and lots of decorations. The Ross Zoo attended the party and brought along a hedgehog, snake, chicken, turtle and alligator. The residents were able to pet the animals and learn a bit about them from the zoo employees.
