Girl Scouts from Troop 45521 brought Halloween to Emerald Place, an Anthem Memory Care community in Glenview, Saturday, Oct. 16. 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."

Emerald Place is at 1879 Chestnut Ave., Glenview.

Anthem's core purpose is to protect, engage, and love people living with memory loss, and is committed to provide understanding and significance to people with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia.

Anthem, based in Lake Oswego, Oregon, operates and develops memory care communities in Illinois, California, Illinois and Kansas.
