ROCHESTER, Minn.-Special visitors spread holiday cheer at a Rochester nursing home. PossAbilities STARS program volunteers went door to door at Edenbrook of Rochester to deliver 50 handmade holiday cards to those living in the home. Following the festive giving, they came together to decorate holiday cookies to enjoy the season. The PossAbilities STARS program specializes in working with adults with disabilities.
