The San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens meet Sunday in the Super Bowl. To celebrate the America’s biggest unofficial holiday, the Kirkpatrick Day Program had a day of football-themed activities.
Designed by program aide Mary Daley (pictured above with a participant and another aide, Jay Gables), all of the day’s events revolved around football, from trivia to word games to a special football game designed by Mary to decorations throughout the program. Mary and her husband built a goal post from PVC plumbing pipe and used it as part of a football toss game with the participants.
Even today’s snack had a football party theme: pretzels and beer…root beer, that is.
The celebration culminated with a drawing for a football signed by coaches and players from the Syracuse University football team. It was won by Eilene O’Connor (pictured below with Mary and assistant day program director Amy Gannon), a proud SU alum!
