About 110 family and friends gathered at St. Johnland Nursing Center in Kings Park on Aug. 1 to celebrate its Medical Model Adult Day Health Service Annual Breakfast.

Participants who attend the Monday through Saturday program were joined by family and friends for a wonderful morning of food, fun and music. Guests had an opportunity to see the program firsthand and get a glimpse of how their loved one spends a typical day interacting with others and engaging in games and other mindful activities.
