OakBrook Village residents (from left) Susan Warner, Richard Mauger and Loraine Oxley prepare to send their balloons skyward on Monday, May 13, to celebrate the kick-off of National Nursing Home Week. Each balloon carried a tag bearing a resident's name and asking the finder to call OakBrook and let them know where the balloon was found. The resident whose balloon flies the farthest will receive a prize. Last year, the farthest group of balloons was found in Berne, about 40 miles southeast of Huntington.
