Girl scouts from troop 45521 brought Halloween to Emerald Place, an Anthem Memory Care community in Glenview on Saturday. The girls shared 30 hand-painted pumpkins to the delight of the residents.

"Our residents enjoyed the opportunity to reminisce about Halloween and decorating their homes for the fall season," said Allison Rackow, community relations director. "It brought them so much joy to be able to see and hold the pumpkins that the girls created just for them."
