Dec. 29-Jan. 4
We started our week out with some new entertainment. John Lynch, a former member of “The Memories”, was here to entertain on Saturday. The residents loved it, so will definitely have him back again.
Residents celebrated the New Year with a party on Monday, with a game of “Luck”, which is similar to playing Bingo, but you shake dice. They also got to enjoy the chex mix and puppy chow they had made at cooking club, as well as Christmas cookies and grasshoppers, which they love. A good time was had by all!
Bingo was hosted this week by the activity department, with the help of our auxiliary volunteers Linda and Barb. We have some new faces here at Glenhaven, and Bingo is a good chance for them to meet the other residents.
The Little Acorns were up to visit the residents and to “help” with bowling on Thursday. What a hoot! There is much laughing and excitement when they come to bowl. Everyone is pretty much guaranteed a strike, as the kids make sure all the pins get tipped over one way or another!
Dave’s farewell party was well attended in the afternoon, with many well-wishers from the facility and the community. He will be missed, and we wish him much happiness in whatever the next adventure brings his way.
Friday was popcorn day, and the residents played dominoes in the afternoon.
