Story Corner: Traditions
Chelsea and Shane’s mother died in 2003. Chelsea’s favorite memory with her mother was visiting Ocean City, NJ. The family would go to Wonderland Pier & Castaway Cove, and eat at mom’s favorite places- Uncle Bill’s Pancake House and Mac & Manco’s Pizza. They would always stay at the Pier 4 Hotel in a bayside room. At night, they would play a fun game that mom made up just for them– seeing who could throw ice cubes the farthest off the balcony, scoring points for each throw. Whoever could hit the bay would score the most points! Below are pictures of Chelsea and Shane celebrating their traditions over the years. We love to watch them grow and smile while remembering their mom.
Shane’s favorite memory with his mother was going to Hershey Park and staying at the Hershey Hotel during the holidays. Their mother would schedule a breakfast with Santa Claus at the hotel, and Shane remembered writing his list for Santa ahead of time so that he could give it to him in person. They would then see the Holiday Musical at the Hershey Lodge and visit Candylane (the special exhibit in Hershey Park for the holidays).
Both Chelsea and Shane have graduated from the program.
