Halloween Bingo at Providence Motherhouse – Kingston

Who said Halloween is for children? Perhaps it is because many of the sisters and staff let loose their inner child in the dining room at Providence Motherhouse. To enhance the environment, the costumes worn by staff and many of the sisters were most creative and some even had us guessing the identity of the person so adorned. As always, safe distancing was observed as the regular Thursday Bingo got under way. Bingo winners are always eager to choose the mystery prize.

This is just one of the many opportunities offered to provide socialization and enjoy variety in our lives during the COVID-19 reality.
