Special moments can arise when least expected.

Angels on Wheels ice cream truck from Topton made a visit to Walnut Woods recently—during the last week of June, and just the beginning of long summer days.

“Everyone most certainly loved their ice cream, and it brought back lots of memories to our residents waiting outside for the ice cream truck,” said Walnut Woods Enrichment Coordinator Jessica Gumbert.

Walnut Woods is a independent senior living community in Boyertown, Pa.
