In honor of our sweet mothers in the facility, a tea was held on Mother’s Day.
Many were in attendance and had a wonderful time.
Fresh floral arrangements, balloons and delicious food added to the atmosphere, but the true beauty was all the mothers.
A women’s honor party was held on Friday to also celebrate the importance of mothers and all women.
This week’s cover card winners were Melba Saunders, Vivian Edwards, Lois Morris, Bonnie Carney, Craig Moeller, and Dorothy Farrar.
For our game of one-line Bingo on Thursday afternoon, each of the players received fifty cents. We had a huge crowd and wonderful help from family members, residents and the Restorative Program to ensure everyone had the help they needed to participate fully.
Every Monday afternoon, the ladies fill the activity room for fingernail painting.
They have a wide variety of colors to choose from and always leave with well manicured nails. The ladies love their pampering time.
The Country Store was open on Tuesday.
The residents started lining up almost an hour before the doors opened to be the first in line for the shopping spree.
They are given play money and then able to shop until they are broke. The tables were filled with items ranging from jewelry, knick-knacks, toiletry items and so much more. We have so many generous people who donate items for our store and we are very grateful.
This week’s games were so much fun.
The group participated in Rhyme Time on Tuesday morning and it was a great way to start the games off.
For Beanbag Toss, Ray Crowell took first place and Lois Morris took second. Dorothy Farrar was the jackpot winner of Penny Ante.
Shuffleboard brought out the competition, but Mignon Mayo managed to capture first place honors.
The May Resident Council was held on Thursday.
Alberta Barker presided over the meeting with 10 residents and 6 Department Heads in attendance.
This meeting is closed to residents and approved employees by the council only.
It gives them the opportunity to have their opinions and voiced heard to ensure the facility meets their preferences.
The residents had Classic Movie night on Monday.
They enjoyed watching The Covered Wagon. Classic movies are always a big hit with the residents. Snacks were served along with the movie only adding to its fun.
Macedonia Church of Christ and Dresden First Baptist Church have provided our Sunday morning services for the residents. They are so dedicated and do a wonderful job each week.
Freeman’s Chapel Methodist Church and Bethel Youth Group provided song services and scripture on May 1.
Violet Totty and the Good Timers provided the afternoon program on May 8.
They are all so talented and bring such joy to the residents with their programs. Thank you all for provided services to our residents and bringing a smile to their faces.
