One of the most enjoyable periods of the year is coming to an end and already leaving a taste of wanting more. São João in the pandemic was different, without parties, but we managed to make Arraiá Mário Penna happen in a very special way and with all the security that the moment requires. Each sector made its own decoration and the four that stood out were awarded, as follows: 1st place (Nutrition and Dietetics Service – SND); 2nd place (Chemotherapy); 3rd place (Radiotherapy), and 4th place (Controllership).
The dedication and commitment of all sectors were impeccable, which made the dispute even more fierce. There were little flags, balloons, typical games, gifts, scarecrow, cardboard city, small farm, garish, accordion player, square dance and even weddings. And patients were not left out. Each one, in their own way, participated in the bash. Some helped to make the decoration while undergoing a longer treatment, others were characterized in the beds, and there was even Rainha da Popcorn and Rei do Peanutim.
The typical foods were also successful. As there is no food available in certain areas of the hospital, the eating time took place in the permitted places, but with the presence of a collaborator from every corner. So, everyone was able to participate a little bit. It had everything: popcorn, green corn, hot dogs, broth, hominy, peanut butter, paçoca, mush, bread, peanuts, apple of love and other delicacies that just mention the water in your mouth.
Congratulations to all participants! You, without exception and, regardless of classification, gave a show of joy and lightened up such a difficult moment that we are facing with the pandemic.
