Hats Off To Halloween

St. Charles Health Campus resident Lorene Jewell, front, and employee Amber Brockriede waved to residents in their rooms Thursday afternoon as the two led the Crazy Hat Parade that wound through the Jasper nursing home. Since it is difficult for many of the residents to get dressed in costumes because of physical limitations, they are given the option of wearing a goofy hat, a feather boa or both during the parade, which is an annual Halloween tradition.
