Adrian Manor has a new transportation van! As our older model 2002 Dodge Van continued to have problems, the Adrian Healthcare Board along with Adrian Manor Management had been discussing a new van for a few months when alas, our formerly trustworthy (and rust-worthy) old van threw us a “curve” and began to decline a bit faster than we had anticipated. This required prompt attention and swift action. We then went ahead with our accelerated search and we are the proud owners of a fully paid for 2012 Dodge Caravan modified for wheelchair access and mobility.
From fairy tale characters to President Barack Obama to superheroes to a lumberjack and a sumo wrestler and even the Village People, Main Street in Adrian was lined with children and adults in costume on Halloween. Kids greeted business owners and civic groups with “Trick or Treat” and in return the kids were generously given candy and other goodies.
The Adrian Lions Club leads this event, providing safety for trick-or-treaters along with an opportunity to collect eye glasses for the Lions Saving Sight Project.
For the first time in 29 years, the Kansas City Royals won their way to the World Series. Fans everywhere showed their love for the boys in blue, even right here in Adrian! Just an hour before Game 7 of the World Series, local Royals fans of all ages made their way to the George Bruto Athletic Complex as a show of support for the Royals. As a group picture was taken, the crowd yelled over and over, “Let’s go, Royals! Let’s go, Royals!”
