Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Stepping Stones and Mariposa celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by having lunch together. On the menu, there was corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, and soda bread. Apple cake with a custard topping and potato candy were served for dessert. The residents gave presentations on Irish agriculture, religion and the origins of the leprechaun, and corned beef. The residents also did an art project where they decorated a small canvas to celebrate their sobriety dates. Many thanks to Susan H. and all the residents for making this such a nice afternoon!
