The speed limit on Harrison Main Campus is 15 MPH and Cherry Lane Estates is 20 MPH.  It is important for everyone’s safety that the speed limits are adhered to.  Please remind residents, employees and family members of the speed limit and that it needs to be observed.  Thank you for your help in keeping everyone safe.

Reminder to All Cottagers
With winter fast approaching, all cottagers need to clear the front area of cottages where snow and ice is scooped.  Please keep cars back from the sidewalk so Maintenance can get snow removal equipment passed them. Thank you for your help!

Halloween Photos from Staff and Cottagers
Attention friends and families of our residents! Halloween will soon be here, and we’d love for our residents to see all of your costumes. To do this, we will be putting together a slideshow of Halloween photos to play on our internal channel, Channel 3. Please send us photos you take this weekend so we can all join in the fun, too!

Photos can be sent to our Facebook page (Good Samaritan Home of Quincy), or e-mailed to contact@gshq.org. They will not be posted publicly; they will only display on our internal channel. We hope you all have a Happy Halloween!
