The Press 7.7.10 This month was filled with excitement and fun. We started the month off with the Hinkle Family Singing. They are a Christian group from Texas. We were so proud to have them stop by our facility.
The cover card winners for the month were Barbra Baker, Vivian Hubbard, Evelyn Bynum and Lizzie Williams. The winners of yahtzee were Margaret Plunk, Vivian Hubbard and Sandra Winston. Sandra got 3 yahtzees in one game!
We had a lot of social events this month. We had the banana split party, the popcorn social on Mondays, coke floats, coffee and donut day and a birthday party for all the residents. We also had Red Hats for the women and Red Caps for the men.
The Civitans also came for Father’s Day. They passed out Bibles and balloons to all the men. We really appreciate what they did. All the men were so happy to receive gifts.
The Martingales graced us with their singing. Also, we had our once-a-month cooking class where Vivian Hubbard, Elizabeth Flowers, Patricia Duncan, Donald Gant, Doris Maassen, Sandra Winston, Barbra Baker and Stanly Alford cooking Orange Danishes. They were so wonderful, and no one could just eat one.
To finish the fun this month, we had a luau party. There were sounds of beating drums and waves from the ocean as we play music and had a great time eating summer foods. The residents and staff wore colorful leis. Even Viola Becker got into the spirit as she started to dance for us. We all had a wonderful time this morning and can’t wait to see what July holds!
