Sisters from St. Joseph's Residence in Oak Cliff try to corral parachuting scouts in an interactive video game at the National Scouting Museum in Irving on Saturday, March 7, 2009. The University of Dallas Serra Club sponsored the Nuns' Appreciation Program, which honored the nuns for their service.
