Thursday was a busy day in preparation for Octoberfest. We had a great turnout and the food was terrific. Lots of beers were sampled as well as wines. We had many baskets full of items for the silent auction. Thanks to all who helped in any way preparing for the event, working at the event, donating items to the silent auction, and to all of you who attended. Your generosity in raising funds for our new van is very much appreciated by everyone here at Glenhaven.
Friday was popcorn day, and the residents enjoyed a rousing game of shuffleboard in the afternoon. Our big winner was Bev Thompson. Everyone did great, and Bill was our biggest cheerleader!
