News for the week of November 4th to the 10th:
“There’s a light that shines on everyone, burning brighter every day
For the souls who search for peace on earth it’s the Christmas Star that lights the way.”
Colfax Health & Rehabilitation Center invites you to honor or remember your loved ones by naming a Light on our Christmas Star which will shine brightly on our building throughout the holiday season. The names of the loved ones you wish to recognize will be read at our Love Light Program at 1:30 on December 5th and will also be published in the Colfax Messenger during the holiday season. You may pick up the form anytime at the front desk of our facility or look for a copy in an upcoming Colfax Messenger.
We began the week with an afternoon of fun crafts with Audrey. This week we made holiday placemats. Everyone liked how they turned out and agreed they will make our home a little more festive. Later, Dan Korn performed in the East Dining Room. Residents enjoy listening to his music.
Monday morning craft group was back to work finishing up items for our craft sale. After craft group we readied the Square for our monthly Green Leaf Café. With table cloths and menus in place the room looked just like a small town pub. As the residents gathered, waitresses Loretta and Barb took orders and served up drinks. Everyone enjoyed visiting while Chef Andy prepared their food, fresh off the grill and hot out of the deep fryer. All agreed everything tasted great!
Tuesday morning found residents in the Square where the rolling pins came out and we made a batch of our famous dog treats. They will be for sale at our Craft Sale at the end of the month. Meanwhile in the East lounge we watched a video called Tractor Tales. The afternoon found our Bingo enthusiasts in the Square. All went away with bags full of treats. Before supper we were blessed to have Jordan Herrick spend some time with us. Not only does he bring us an inspiring message, but also sings some of our favorite hymns.
Wednesday morning we all gathered in the Square for our weekly church service with Pastor Sparby. We appreciate him taking the time to come and share with us. In the afternoon residents gathered in the Square for black out bingo. We played four rounds, which meant four residents went away the big winners and split a pot of over forty dollars.
Thursday morning our weekly volleyball teams met in the East Dining Room. The competition was once again fierce, and we declared the game a tie. Meanwhile, Father Joe and his assistant, Jerry led our Catholics in mass. In the afternoon we donned our aprons and stirred up a batch of pumpkin cookies. They sure tasted good alongside a fresh cup of coffee.
Gospel Sing a Long started our Friday. We have a very special group of volunteers who make this time possible. Bruce, and Kathy are always glad to share their time, songs and special words with us. Friday afternoon, Dime Bingo was played in the Square. It is always a great way to end the week.
Highlights of next weeks’ activities include a Veteran’s Day Program and music by Bev Ward. In between the fun we will continue our work on getting ready for our craft sale on November 24th.
Until Next week,
Barb Stobb, Activity Director
