A day to remember!

Yesterday we had the pleasure of spotlighting one of our special residents during a “This is Your Life” event. We had many family, friends, staff, and residents present and were honored to have Colonel Powelle and Sgt. Tullener’s Of the Idaho State Police as well. Since Mr Royse was a member of ISP for many years, ISP sent an old and modern squad car to top off this celebration. Mr Royse was thrilled with all the memories the day brought back to him.
