The nine pictures above are of visiting day and the last one shows Mike, Eileen Geiry, Barbara Geiry and some other friends entertaining their visitors. Visiting was held on alternate Sundays for a few hours in what was called the "home ecc." room that was not actually used as such but was where the children got to see their visiting family or sponsors. Once a month and on holidays the children went home or to a sponsor's home for the weekend or for a week during Christmas, Easter, and summer vacation.

10. Eileen and Barbara Geiry peer out of the Village bus at the vivid colors and the screams of riders at Palisades Amusement Park. They often kept the children from immediately running off the buss when we arrived at our destination. The Palisades Amusement Park sign that stood high on the Palisades in plain view of New York City can be seen in the background. This bus also took the children to many sponsored Christmas parties, and places such as Rockaway Beach and the New York World's Fair!

8. Eileen and Barbara Geiry watch through the corridor glass as construction workers put the final fittings on the new swimming pool. The view will soon be gone as green slats are installed in the chainlink fence to give the sisters privacy during their swim time. But at one point you could stand on the radiator and get a peek.
