News for the week of June 30th:
We started the 4th of July week off with a bang! For lunch on Monday, the residents were invited to join our Liver Lover’s Club. Chef Andy prepared the beef liver by pan frying it and smothering it in bacon and onions. About 1/3 of our residents enjoyed eating liver, while the other residents chose to eat an alternate meal.
Monday and Tuesday afternoons brought bingo in The Square, one of the resident’s favorite pass times. Tuesday’s bingo was 4th of July themed, with red, white, and blue prizes offered. After bingo, residents enjoyed a red, white, and blue parfait and some special blue punch. Everyone had a great time.
On Wednesday morning Pastor Schroetter led church in The Square. In the afternoon residents enjoyed music by Maple Ridge. While listening to music, residents enjoy sipping on coffee and munching on cookies.
Thursday, of course, was Independence Day! It was 243 years ago that the declaration was signed. Residents enjoyed a quiet day inside, away from the heat, while Loretta Logslett passed out treats from room to room. Residents love seeing Loretta’s smiling face and getting to visit with her while she dishes them up a sweet treat.
Friday morning brought Gospel sing and more outside heat. This time it was Audrey Larson who greeted residents in their rooms and passed out sweet treats. For residents who do not feel well enough to leave their rooms, these visits are especially appreciated.
Over the past several weeks, residents have been enjoying fresh picked strawberries from the garden outside the East Ridge dining room. This garden was planted by Kim Vandewalle and her husband Steve, who also maintain it throughout the summer. The garden also hosts bird’s nests and butterflies in it. Residents enjoy looking at the garden through the dining room windows.
Next week’s highlights include music by Blue Sky on Wednesday afternoon and local children playing T-ball in the grass on Wednesday evening. CHRC is also hosting the annual staff picnic for our wonderful employees and their families on Wednesday evening!
