On June 23rd a group of teens from the library took a trip down to Rochester to visit the Ronald McDonald House. They brought with them a variety of favorite board games. Residents of the Ronald McDonald House joined them in the community room to engage in some friendly mystery hunting, monster fighting, and maze navigating. A fun and joyful atmosphere was created and new friendships were made.
The Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, Minnesota provides a home-away-from home and offers support to families seeking medical care for their children. The House hosts 42 families each night and has been in operation since 1980.
