Hi everyone! It’s me, Josie! I am the penguin who lives at the Sacred Heart Home. I was named Josie by the Residents in honor of the Sisters’ Patron: Saint Joseph.
On Saturday, May 13, I visited the Toledo Zoo and Aquarium with our Sisters, Residents, and friends. I had a great time and thought you might like to see some pictures from our event.
Here’s a few of our Residents and Sr. Mary Joseph getting ready for our outing. Thanks to our friends at Martin & Martin Insurance who sponsored our bus to the Zoo!
The weather was beautiful and we all had a lovely time! Here’s Mother Jeanne Mary, Sr. Elizabeth, and Sr. Margaret.
The Zoo brought special animals to the Pavilion for our Residents and guests to meet, like this silky chicken named General Tso.
If chickens aren’t your thing, the Zoo volunteers also brought a snake for us to pet. Penguins don’t like snakes, so I did not pet it.
