MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR FAITHFUL READERS!!!!
Thanks to all our volunteers for making our Christmas a very eventful and happy time for all our Glenhaven family. Your time and gifts are much appreciated by staff and residents. We are truly blessed to have a community that supports us.
[emember_protectedChristmas Eve day was busy with Catholic communion, entertainment from the Kilde girls at 2:00, and Christmas Eve services with Grace Baptist Church, who brought several members with them to sing carols.
Santa arrived at 8 A.M. Christmas morning, just in time for breakfast. He brought 6 little elves along to help pass out gifts to all the residents of Glenhaven, Grand Oaks, and Havenwood. He and his helpers were getting mighty tired after all that work. Many smiley faces welcomed him as he traveled through the dining rooms and halls, HO! HO! HOING! and jingling his bells.
We had many visitors on Christmas Day, with around 40 people eating Christmas Dinner with their loved ones. How great is that!
Boyceville Methodist Church was here on Tuesday morning, and the residents got a chance to sing more Christmas carols. Live to be Healthy followed, and in the afternoon we learned some very interesting and little known facts about Christmas and the traditions of countries throughout the world when we played Christmas Trivia.
St. John’s Catholic Church hosted Bingo on Wednesday afternoon, and on Thursday the residents enjoyed a game of dominoes in the afternoon.
Friday we had a New Year’s Eve Party in the afternoon. We played cards and enjoyed grasshoppers and lots of other Christmas goodies! Our big winners in the card games were Bev Thompson and Dorothy Troolines. Congrats, Ladies!
