The days have started cooling off and the front porch is even more crowded. The residents love these nice days and are looking forward to watching the changes of the season.  Many visitors have also been caught enjoying the cool breezes with them as well.
This week’s cover card winners were Geneva Foster, Inez Spence, Geraldine Damron, Dorothy Larson, Jerri Benderman and Gladys Phillips.  Each of these lucky participants received $1 for completing their cards first.  
For Thursday’s one-line Bingo, each of the players received a prize.  The prizes varied from potato chips, snack cakes, flavored apple sauces and fifty cents. We have large crowds when it comes to Bingo and cover card and we are very fortunate to have such great help from peer residents, employees and visitors.
The sports competitions were a lot of fun this week.  Lois Morris was the winner of velcro ball with 725 points and her runner-up was Ray Crowell with 700 points. When it was time for bucket toss, the roles were reversed.  Ray was the winner with 55 points and scoring right behind him was Lois with 50.
The residents participated in two non-competitive games, but still proved challenging.  Handswatter and tableball are always loads of fun and a great upper body workout.  
Congratulations to all our winners and to our participants for a job well done.
The September resident council meeting was held with 12 residents and eight department heads present.  The meeting is presided over by Alberta Barker and the residents discuss menus, complaints, preferences and upcoming events. We encourage all residents to attend the monthly meeting to have their voices heard.
The residents enjoyed chocolate chip ice cream for this week’s social.  Heaping bowls were served with refills available and it did the trick on hitting the spot.  
After the group social, we passed out the treat to the residents unable to attend. Not a drop was left after everyone was served.
The residents also had mind benders trivia, video hour, front porch sitting and fingernail painting this week to fill up their time.  
Our residents love to stay busy and we do our best to keep them well entertained. We have a wonderful program with terrific community support and volunteers.
Second Wind Dreams has been active in the facility. The renewed subscriptions to the newspapers for the activity room and brought gifts as well.  Wishes were made true for four residents.  Kammie Callison received a gift basket filled with lotions, bath gels and body sprays. Sue Bailey received two breast cancer survivor shirts that she will proudly be wearing.  The Castlemans received a beautiful fall wreath for their door. These gifts are amazing and always put beautiful smiles on the residents’ faces.
Macedonia Church of Christ and Dresden First Baptist Church provided Sunday morning services for the residents. They do a tremendous job each week and bring spiritual healing to our residents in the ease of our facility. We are so grateful for your time and commitment.
Violet Totty and the Good Timers put on a wonderful show on Sunday afternoon. They have great talent and we are so lucky to have them sharing it with us each month. They sing all the favorite gospel classics and the residents love having them.
