End of summer celebration

Matheny resident Bryan Desatnick enjoys time in the pool with his father Lloyd and sister Sarah.

The annual Matheny Picnic is a day when students and patients can get together with family and friends to enjoy a stress-free day of visiting and recreation, along with a barbeque buffet prepared by Matheny’s culinary staff.

Fortunately, the weather on Sunday, September 7, cooperated, and not only was there no rain, but it was warm enough to keep the outdoor swimming pool open.
