Living History

Many remarkable people have resided at the Kline Galland Home. People have come from all walks of life, with different languages and different histories. While some residents keep kosher, others do not. A few residents created a board to act as liaison between the residents and the staff, which has led to increased cooperation and communication between the two sides of the home.
