Residents at Culpepper Place in Olive Branch showed off their autumn and Halloween spirits with a door decorating contest for October. Activities Coordinator Kasie “KC” Thomas said participating residents were assisted by staff to deck the doors to their rooms with paper cutouts, artificial leaves, wreaths, garland, crime scene tape, spiders, banners, chains and festive ghoulish items. Winners were chosen for the best doors by three guest judges. Cherie Nelson, clinical liaison with Modern Vascular, Melissa Hadskey, director of business development with Legacy Hospice, and Matthew Breazeale, journalist with DeSoto Times Tribune, were invited to judge the doors. Winners were selected for first through third places along with most creative, best theme, most festive, and most scary. First through third places received cash prizes. First place door went to Thomas and Helen McCollough; Second place door went to Homer Burton; and Third place door went to Ms. Bond.
