Tonganoxie Nursing Center will be celebrating National Nursing Home Week with activities today.

The public is invited to the event, which features activity booths — cake walk, Nerf gun bull’s eye, ice cream bars, ring toss and a sucker tree — starting at 2 p.m. at the center, 1010 East St. in Tonganoxie.

At 2:30 p.m., residents will get the chance to “dunk bucket” their favorite staff member.

At 3:30 p.m., the Geri Roll — a “race” that allows residents to travel around a race route with the help of staff members or family pushing them around the race route. A live band also is scheduled to start playing at that time.

A picnic concludes the day’s festivities. The meal is set to start at 4 p.m.

For more information, call Dameta at 913-369-8705.
