On July 22nd residents attended a live action production, complete with singing, dancing and animals, of Queen Esther at Sight and Sound Theater in Lancaster, PA. “Set in the opulent yet perilous Persian Empire, QUEEN ESTHER is a captivating tale of beauty and bravery. Esther’s ordinary life changed forever when she was taken through the palace doors, entering a new world of royalty and risk. With a crown on her head and a secret in her heart, can she find the courage to trust in God’s plan and believe that she was made for such a time as this?” Transportation for this active senior living excursion as well as a box lunch were provided for all who attended.
