Tobacco stripping brings back fond memories

Bracken County Nursing and Rehab residents were treated to a unique activity of tobacco stripping.

With the help of Maintenance Director Rick Douglas, residents got straight to work on different grades of tobacco.  Although a new experience to some, a few residents at Bracken County recalled stories from farm life.

Bracken County staff enjoyed sharing in this moment as they watched residents work with the same heart, determination, and skill of their younger years. This seemingly basic activity turned into such a wonderful experience sparking fond memories of days gone by, but so obviously not forgotten.
