Assisted living facility throws Jamboree party for residents

Updated: Friday, July 18 2014, 05:45 PM EDT
ADENA, Ohio -- Officials at a local assisted living facility are bringing Jamboree in the Hills to their residents.
It's all the same, lots of country music, food and fun, but the people who attend the Jamboree in Adena are not your typical "Jambo" crowd.
Everybody at the Autumn Healthcare Facility of Adena is jamming to country music, and there's no doubt the people who drive pass are probably listening too.
Residents had been eagerly anticipating the big day.
"Oh I'm having great fun," resident Margie Gavorcik said. "We've waited a long time for this."
Kids even came dressed up in their cowboy gear, ready for some fun with their grandparents.
It's called Jamboree in Adena. The event is a team effort from people who work at the facility.  "They're like, 'we want to go to Jambo,''' Activity Director Becky Goundry said. "I said, 'well then we'll have a Jambo party here."
And they did.
There were non-alcoholic Jell-0 shots, a camper on site, and lots of fun. The biggest part was the 'Redneck Run Race on Wheels.'
"It's just been all the community planning and donating anything that they could just to make our residents happy," Director of Nursing Darla Spencer said.
