The Manitoulin Lodge website reported late last week, “Manitoulin Lodge did not stay away from St. Patrick’s Day festivities this past week. To ensure spirits remained high during this difficult time, the (nursing home) pulled out all the stops and created a fun-filled, interactive party.”

“Residents tried their hand at bowling, fishing and pin the shamrock on the leprechaun before indulging in a host of green theme treats including cake, cupcakes and cookies,” the Manitoulin Lodge website reported.
