November 10, 2017 (Henrietta, NY) ─ All aboard! Residents from Woodcrest Commons, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Henrietta, recently took a scenic trip on an interurban trolley during a visit to the New York State Museum of Transportation.
“It only took us a mile distance wise but transported them back decades,” said Activities Director Lindsay Lown.
Pictured above, Woodcrest Commons residents Doug Kurlan, Michele Hood and Lois Knapp enjoy a ride on a historic trolley! Also pictured on the trolley is Norene Hogan.
The electric trolley was decorated in a variety of vintage ads and everyone had the opportunity to sound the trolley’s whistle! In addition, the tour included historic vehicles and photographs, model railroad displays, a research library and a gift shop.
Pictured here, Woodcrest Commons residents Doug Kurlan, Richard Marsh, Lois Knapp and Norene Hogan ask a volunteer questions about the model train exhibit at the New York State Museum of Transportation in Rush. Residents were especially enthralled by the model railroad, and spent quite a bit of time pointing out all the fine details and reminiscing about model trains that their families would set up around their Christmas tree in their youth.
