The residents of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County said hello to the season of colored leaves at the annual Fall Harvest candlelight dinner. While everyone waited for their fried shrimp or Chicken Florentine they enjoyed listening to old favorites like “When You’re Smiling” and “Mañana.”

“The evening was a success largely due to the hard work of the dedicated staffs of RUNNELLS’ Departments of Activities Therapy and, Food and Nutrition Services,” said Union County Freeholder Chester Holmes, RUNNELLS liaison. “Of course you can’t forget about the valuable assistance of RUNNELLS volunteers,” Freeholder Holmes added.

RUNNELLS is located at 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights.
