Nursing home residents get into holiday spirit

December 16, 2006

Albany - - An annual Christmas tradition continued Saturday for residents at Palmyra Nursing Home in Albany.

Residents decorated their wheel chairs and paraded around their nursing home showing their holiday spirit.

Santa Claus came out to show his support too. The parade was led by the Mr. & Ms. Palmyra Nursing Home.

It's a prestigious title they had to be interviewed for. At 81 years old, Ms. Palmyra says she's glad to be leading the parade.  

"To me its an honor to be Ms. Palymra over this nursing home, to be over all these people and to be as old as I am. I think it's a tribute to me," says Vera Holley.

Some members from Life Christian Center International joined the residents to help them decorate for the parade.
