Glenhaven News Dec. 1-8
The residents had their first Christmas entertainment upstairs on Saturday, as the Connorsville Comets 4-H Club came and sang carols with them. We appreciate all the groups and individuals who have called and offered to come and celebrate this wonderful season with us! We truly live in a great community.
Sunday was our annual Care Tree Lighting sponsored by our Auxiliary. It was very well attended and the music was terrific. The kitchen put on a great meal, and the GC court was here to help out and light the tree. The tree is beautiful, as always. We appreciate all who supported the Auxiliary in their fundraiser.
The baking club was Christmas baking again on Monday, and this time made fruitcake. The recipe came from the Munkwitz family, and it is delicious. We had lots of help from the Mounce girls, and Mary Munkwitz.
Pastor Brad from Trinity Lutheran was here for services on Tuesday, and church was followed by Live to be Healthy.
The Little Acorns came up and played some golf with the residents on Wednesday morning. They were trying to get as close to Santa’s nose as possible. For little kids, they have a lot of power! We also had Resident Council that morning. Residents decided what they would like for Christmas dinner and we went over the calendar for the month, which is very busy. The afternoon was spent making snowflakes to hang in the lobby area. The residents thought they looked hard to do, but when they got the hang of it, they did a wonderful job. It really brightens up the lobby area.
Bingo this week was on Thursday, as the Forest Methodist Church hosted. We appreciate Pastor John, and Dennis and Joyce Petersen for being such good helpers.
Wes was here for Catholic Communion on Friday morning, as well as a lot of good visits, I’m sure. Residents also enjoyed popcorn in the morning, and in the afternoon Pastor Jan from the United Methodist Church was here for the second of her four Advent Study classes with the residents and tenants. She had a nice group again this week, as they seem to be really enjoying her talks. They also enjoyed social time afterwards with coffee and cookies.
Saturday afternoon Rudy Rudesill was here to sing for the residents. They always enjoy seeing him.
We greatly appreciate all this week’s volunteers.
