This month the boys were very busy with activities! Our activities this month included: going to a high school basketball game, enjoying a day roller skating, and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the boys enjoyed quite the feast prepared by staff! It included a variety of chicken wings, salads, chips and dip, and various Irish dishes, including Shepard’s Pie! At school that day, the boys studied the legend of St. Patrick himself, Irish traditions and how the day is celebrated across the country.
