Photo gallery: Seniors pick pumpkins despite travel restrictions

Residents at Morning Pointe of Danville were treated to a pumpkin patch excursion with a fall festival atmosphere without leaving their home on Tuesday.

Because of COVID-19 travel restrictions, the senior living facility wasn’t able to take residents on their annual field trip to Devine’s Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze in Mercer County. But the owners of the farm brought the experience to the residents.

The Devines donated the pumpkins for the portable pumpkin patch and the tobacco sticks used to create a maze for the residents to maneuver through, said Morning Pointe’s Life Enrichment Director Nicole Walton.

And to make it an even more unusual outing, a couple of Walton’s family members brought two horses and two dwarf goats for the residents to pet. “They were more than willing to come out for the afternoon,” Walton said.

Residents also were given the opportunity to throw a dart at some balloons where they could win a prize, and bags of popcorn were shared.

After everyone picked out a pumpkin, they were going to paint and decorate them for fall, Walton said.
