Glenhaven News Oct. 8-14
Sunday started our week with Catholic Communion and Christ the King Church services.
Monday was Columbus Day, so residents gathered in the afternoon to make ships in a bottle and do some Columbus Day trivia. The ship project is not complete, as we ran out of time, but we will complete them soon. The boats were more of a challenge than anticipated!
Tuesday was a busy, busy day. We had church with Holy Cross, followed by Live to Be Healthy exercises, and the Student Council made their monthly visit to Glenhaven, Grand Oaks and Havenwood. They brought games and visited with the residents and tenants. Thanks kids for coming.
In the evening, everyone had their feet a-tapping as they listened to CT & the Heuts. The lobby and upstairs were packed, and the list of requests was more than they had time to play! A great time was had by all. They do a great job! They will be coming for the next two months, the second Tuesday, and then take a break over the winter, as some are snowbirds.
Holy Cross returned on Wednesday for Bingo. Thanks Missy and Jill. We also started some baking for the upcoming bake sale.
Judy, our dietary director, had a Scarecrow Happy Hour for the tenants on Wednesday, and for the residents on Thursday. She served moonshine and hot apple cider as well as snacks. Residents shot at beer cans and pitched bean bags into buckets. She also had some very interesting scarecrow facts to share with us.
The outing on Friday to see the zebras was great! The leaves were gorgeous, and Brian Bazille was a very knowledgeable and accommodating host. He had the zebras all rounded up so we could get a close look at them, and even brought one of his miniature donkeys in the bus for the residents to pet. We stopped at the Connorsville park afterwards and ate lunch, then headed toward home, passing through the Best Valley area, where some of passengers were from. It was very enjoyable day!
We have a new entertainer coming Saturday, named Wes (Squeezie) Miller.
