The residents participated in Spring Fling in honor of the new season. They celebrated with festive music and the room was decorated in butterflies and spring flowers with matching balloons. The food included a fresh fruit tray, iced cookies, rainbow sherbert and pink lemonade. 
The Cover Card winners have been Gloria Woodley, Evelyn Bethel, Dorothy Vitalo, Mary Cantrell, Geneva Foster, Jerri Benderman, Mag Yeargin, Margaret Green, Dennis Jordan, Jerri Young, Mavis Parsley and Joyce Gatewood.
Each of these lucky participants received $1 for completing their entire cards first. 
For one-line Bingo, each player received fifty cents and we played until everyone wins. 
The residents have participated in many creative and mental-based activities.
They gathered for Tell Me All about It and Show and Tell for a brief discussion and then broke into groups doing puzzles, watching videos and some enjoyed the weather on the front porch.
The Country Store was open on Tuesday and a large group participated.
The tables were filled with wonderful items that had been donated and purchased by various groups and staff.
The residents selected envelopes containing play money and then shopped until they spent it all.
To express their creative side, they created beautiful Easter portraits. They were given their choice of mediums including crayons, markers, paints, glitters or water colors.
Everyone did a fantastic job and they are proudly on display in the activity room
The sports challenges continue to heat up and the competition is fierce but with great camaraderie. 
Ray Crowell took first place honors in Top Toss with 45 points and Lawn Darts with 45. 
Bobby Bynum was the champion of Fling It scoring 35 points and Corn Hole with 21.
Dorothy Farrar took first place honors at Horseshoes with 12 points.
Congratulations to all our winners and to all participants because they put up a close battle.
The Prayer Breakfast was held on Thursday morning. Brother Virgil Allen conducted the devotional service and the Dietary Department prepared the delicious meal. The residents were served country ham, red-eye gravy, homemade biscuits, eggs of choice, and scratch oatmeal or cereal. It was a wonderful program.
Other tasty activities included the March Birthday Party, Social Hours, and Movie Day.
The birthday party featured two delicious white cakes with vanilla icing.
The residents helped all of our March birthday goers celebrate to fullest.
For Popcorn and a Movie, residents enjoyed fresh popped popcorn on our facility machine while watching Baby Boom.
The delicious smell seems to lure in residents, visitors and employees. 
For the Social Hour, the residents selected ice cream. We had chocolate, vanilla and strawberry and served it on the cone. 
The residents had two wonderful song programs. Friends of Carmen Kelley were with us on March 19 for an incredible performance.
Gary Mitchell performed on Monday night and did an outstanding job.
The residents love hearing live music and we greatly appreciate all who are able to provide these activities for them.
Bible Union Baptist Church has led the Wednesday night services. They do a great job and we are very grateful for their continued service to our facility. Adams Chapel Baptist Church and Freeman’s Chapel provided Sunday afternoon service on their respected Sundays. They always do a wonderful job.
Sunday morning services were provided by Dresden First Baptist Church, Liberty Church of Christ and Macedonia Church of Christ.  We appreciate these groups so much for their continued support of our residents. Published in The WCP 4.3.12
