Photos: Wonderful “Wizard of Oz” Screening at Waterside!

Thank you for joining us for Monday’s our Audience Choice film “The Wizard of Oz“!

Our residents selected this film as the one they most wanted us to screen – and we had trivia games with prizes –  and more – at our pre-movie presentation by Marc Baum of the All Things Oz Museum.

Then we watched the film on our scenic plaza.
