SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — During the pandemic, residents at nursing and assisted living homes couldn’t leave their facilities. But today, Good Sam Sioux Falls Center residents are leaving their home for a day of fun.
With warm weather in the forecast, Good Sam residents spent the afternoon enjoying a picnic before heading into the Great Plains Zoo.
“I’m so flipping excited. I tell you what I haven’t been to the zoo since my son and I went for what’s it called? For the… Zoo Boo, Halloween. That’s been years ago. And I know it’s changed. Let’s get in there, I don’t even want to eat,” Penny Humphrey said.
Humphrey says it’s not just the animals she’s excited about, but simply the opportunity to get outdoors with other residents.
