(L to R): Resident Council vice chairperson Mary Lynn, formerly of Hillsborough; Helen Paul, formerly of Roselle and Mary White, formerly of Rahway show off the fake money that made them the three top winners at the RUNNELLS Casino Day for residents, patients, family members, volunteers and staff.

There was an exciting day of casino fun as RUNNELLS SpecializedHospital of Union County held the annual Monte Carlo Casino Day. There was Texas Hold ‘Em Poker, Black Jack, Roulette, Wheel of Fortune, Horse Racing and High/Low.

“The Activities Therapy Department’s staff did a superb job of creating fun at RUNNELLS as usual,” said Union County Freeholder Chester Holmes, RUNNELLS liaison. “Their year-round list of activities includes things as diverse as going to a dog show, viewing holiday lights, fishing trips, creating works of art and attending baseball games.”

The assistance of volunteers makes special events much easier for the staff and much more enjoyable for residents and patients. If you’d like to volunteer call the Office of Volunteer Services at 908-771-5847.
