Glenhaven News – 2-21-2018

Glenhaven News Feb. 11-17

The start of our very busy week was church with Christ the King on Sunday afternoon. In the evening, the Menonites were here to sing for the residents. 

Monday at baking club we made heart shaped cut out cookies for our Valentine’s party. The residents did a great job of mixing, rolling, cutting and decorating. A few of them looked they took a roll in the flour bin, but it was a lot of fun.

Tuesday was a whirlwind with exercises in the morning, followed by the Sweethearts Dinner for our residents who are married or have a significant other. The kitchen did a great job. From all reports the meal was delicious.

In the afternoon, the elementary Student Council students came to visit and play games with the residents, and many brought Valentine creations with them also. Thanks a lot, kids!

This was followed by Gladys Best’s birthday party. Jane and Friends came and sang for Gladys. They also performed that day at the Community Center. They are a busy bunch of ladies! Gladys had a very nice crowd for her birthday, and all enjoyed cake and ice cream. We appreciate all who came to celebrate. And to Gladys-“Here’s to Many More”.

With Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday falling on the same day for the first time since I believe the TV said 1945, that too was a busy day. Pastor Jonathan from Holy Cross was kind enough to come and do an Ash Wednesday service for us. Holy Cross also came in the afternoon to host Bingo. We appreciate all who came and helped with services and Bingo-Pastor, Peggy, Becky, Bill, and Velma, and anyone else who help.

Following Bingo, we had our annual crowning of our King and Queen of Valentines. This year’s Queen is Judy Peterson, and our King is Claude Williams. Congratulations to you both! Congratulations also to Lois KIlde who was chosen this year’s Queen at the Community Center.

We celebrated Chinese New Year on Friday, with a tea party and Chinese food. They residents wore the Chinese hats they created for last year’s party. It was a great time, and everyone looked so cute in the Chinese hats. Since this is the year of the dog, dessert was dog bone and paw shaped cookies.
