The IRCHS would like to thank the public and all our volunteers for making our "Pineapple Homecoming" event at the Hallstrom House a great success. It was a fun day for the entire family and everyone seemed to have a great time learning about the health benefits of pineapples and the growing and history of the pineapple.
