We had our monthly birthday party Friday April 27. The VFW Women’s Auxiliary hosted the party. They brought cupcakes, strawberry cake, and banana pudding. It was a real treat, and the residents enjoyed it.
We have a multitude of fun activities scheduled for the month of May. We will begin our celebrations on May 4 at 3 p.m. with a Cinco de Mayo party. We are having a Mother’s Day shower on the 13th. The 13th also marks the beginning of National Nursing Home Week. The theme this year is Celebrating the Journey, and we are celebrating by pretending to journey to a different place each day. Monday the 14th, our journey will be to Mars. We will celebrate our journey to Mars by watching the movie ET and playing flying saucer and alien games. Tuesday, we will journey to the farm. We will have popcorn and play Bingo followed by front porch sitting and lemonade and games. We will end our journey to the farm with barn music by Dan Webb. We will journey to the casino on Wednesday, and to celebrate we will play blackjack and dice. On Thursday, we will take a journey to Paris. We will have a perfume contest and Eiffel tower fun. We will also watch A Love Story and have a candlelit dinner. On the last day of National Nursing Home Week, we will journey to the circus. We will celebrate this day with a pet show, circus games and a potluck lunch featuring circus foods. On the 25th, we will have our monthly birthday party. This month, we will celebrate the birthdays of Kathryne Day on the 10th, Annabeth Schwaesdall on the 11th and Frances Coker on the 19th.
Since the weather is nice, we plan on spending more time outdoors this month. Stop by and enjoy some lemonade or another cold drink with us on the porch.
As always, we thank our weekly volunteers. You make all of our endeavors successful. Our home is only complete because you are a part of it. We truly appreciate all that you do for us.
Have a wonderful week.
