ESCANABA — A small gathering in support of the residents at Bishop Noa Home was held Wednesday, May 20 in Escanaba. Kids and adults showed up to walk around the perimeter of the building holding signs, waving, singing, and dancing. Residents were able to watch through their windows. Staff members reported the residents were smiling, waving, and dancing along with their socially-distanced visitors.

“We just want to bring some joy to the residents because they are extremely lonely right now. We hope to do this again in the near future,” said Event Coordinator Karen ­Bougie.
