They had a "Health Fair" at the local Hospital/Nursing Home today. I took the 1927 touring to display at the fair for the residents to see. The events manager at the Nursing Home always likes to have me take the T to any of the events. The first picture shows my Mom and my wife. This is Moms first year to be a resident. Due to lots of health issues, we finally had to have her start staying at the Nursing Home. So this was a special event for all of us. We are blessed that this is a very very good home and Mom loves it there. The older gentleman in the wheel chair is also a resident and we have known him for years. He sat for almost an hour just looking and talking about the car. It really made his day. His daughter and grandkids were there with him. I let the kids sit in the car, and they took lots of pictures. The kids were very well behaved. One of the other photos is of a man and his grandkids. One of the boys wanted to sit in the car and was very interested in it. The other boy was not interested in the least. It was a very nice day, and the staff brought all the residents out to the fair a few at a time. The residents had a very nice time out in the sun and nice spring day.

That is a great thing to do. I imagine many of them enjoyed it more than you know.

That's great Donnie. Good for you.

Our local chapter has a annual monthly meeting at a nursing home so the residence can be wheeled out to see our cars. They have been doing for at least as long I have been in the club (12 years now).

I highly recommend that anyone, or any local chapters do this.

So great to see the young folks mixing with the residents. I'm sure they appreciate it. It was time well invested. Thanks Donnie, for doing this and for posting the pictures.

When I first looked at the thread title I thought I know our cars are old but why would you put your "27 in a nursing home :-)

That was very nice of you. I've taken my cars to a rehab/ senior living center when they have had events but they stopped doing it lately.
