The Heritage of Green Hills, a healthy life plan community in Cumru Township, Berks County, pulled out all the stops to spread cheer on March 20, the Internatio­nal Day of Happiness.

“It’s been a rough year, full of uncertaint­y,” said the community’s Well By Design Director Cheryl Anderson. “But now that spring has arrived, and our team and residents have gotten both shots of the COVID-19 vaccinatio­n, we thought we should celebrate some things the pandemic couldn’t take away from us, like our friendship­s, a sense of humor and fun and our creativity.”

Residents donned fabulously ridiculous squid hats

to play the Best Friends Challenge, the Duck Chuck and Chicken Flickin’ at a “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” party held on the Tavern’s sun-soaked patio.

Harmonicas were handed out for a spontaneou­s concert, and heaps of smileyface cookies were served.

“The weather couldn’t have been better,” Anderson said. “Everyone got a much needed dose of vitamin D along with some healing laughter.”

The Heritage’s signature Well By Design program is a mind, body and spirit initiative offering activities, classes, events (like the Internatio­nal Day of Happiness Party) and services focusing on eight dimensions of wellness — social, physical, intellectu­al, emotional, vocational, spiritual, environmen­tal and health services.
