BRITT | More than a dozen Westview Care Center residents teamed up with staff to decorate pumpkins for its annual contest on Tuesday, Oct. 24, ahead of Halloween.

The event was offered as an option for those involved in the Guardian Angel program, where about 45 residents are matched with staff to participate in activities together.

Throughout the week of Monday, Oct. 23, residents and staff painted and decorated pumpkins provided by Jenny Awe, Westview Care Center activity coordinator.

“We had a fun time,” said Sandy Shear, the center’s marketing coordinator.

She said the pumpkins will be judged by an “outside source" around Halloween.
