Residents in The Arc of Essex County’s group homes have been enjoying the autumn season together, with a mix of fun day trips and at-home celebrations.

At the Nutley group home, residents took a trip to the Turtle Back Zoo, made cupcakes, hosted a game night, and dressed up in their Halloween costumes. Residents from the Washington Avenue group home in Montclair took a trip to Conklin Farm U-Pick, where they enjoyed visiting with farm animals and picking out pumpkins. The Belleville group home took a special trip to Medieval Times. And Cedar Grove residents dressed in costume for the Halloween party at the Canteen in West Caldwell.
