The staff at Caprock Nursing And Rehabilitation Center in Borger are excited about inviting the public to the center from 6:30-8 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 31, for trick or treating. “Not many people think of a nursing home when they think about trick or treating,” said Angela Sherwood, marketing director. Sherwood said the residents get really excited about all of the kids coming in, so they will dress up in costumes and some will even have makeup done. The center has been doing trick or treating for the past four years. Last year, about 400 kids turned out and the year before it was around 300, Sherwood said. (photo by Tim Howsare)
