Residents of Edgemere senior living community recently dressed in costume and gathered in a frightful dungeon with a backdrop of goblins, ghosts and spiders to celebrate Halloween. The Gatlin Gang entertained the group as they danced and enjoyed beer, wine and refreshments. Prizes were given for the three best costumes.

“Halloween is all about fun, and I could tell that everyone who attended the Halloween bash had a fabulous time,” said Lorraine Kendrick, lifestyles director at Edgemere. “The costumes get more impressive and creative with each Halloween, and this year was no exception. We had witches, a clown, a queen and even a cheetah. It was a ball!”
