Glenhaven News Nov. 23-29
Residents enjoyed movies on Saturday afternoon, and Sunday, the Grace Baptist Church was here for services in the afternoon. The Menonites were here to sing to the residents at 6:30 Sunday evening. They will be coming the second Sunday, and will be splitting into two groups from now on, so they will be singing both at Glenhaven and Grand Oaks. They are a large group, made up of all ages, and the residents really enjoy them.
Monday morning started off with our weekly exercise group, which always gets us warmed up for the rest of the day. The baking club gathered in the afternoon, and made cut-out Christmas cookies. We will be using them for the Care Tree lighting on Sunday. They also got a chance to sample the fruits of their labor. Roger Stansbury was outnumbered by all the ladies (he was the only man in the group). But he held his own, and made himself a rather large cookie from the scraps from the cutouts, as he came a little late. The dough got so dry that he couldn’t roll it out, so he just shaped it with his hands, and made a big well in the middle that we put jelly into after it was baked. He said it was the best cookie of the bunch! We had lots of laughs that afternoon.
Tuesday morning was church with Pastor Shannon, accompanied by Irene Schmidt on the piano. They will be here for Christmas Eve morning services next month also, which will be at 9:30, and will be followed by refreshments.
In the afternoon, Jane and Friends performed for their last monthly birthday party. We will truly miss them, but they said they may just come once in a while. We appreciate their very loyal service to Glenhaven over the last eight years. That’s a long time to be coming to entertain! Jane, Mary Jane, Peggy, Velma, Fuzzy, Chuck & Sandy, plus all their groupies who have joined us over the years – you made the residents’ day with your music. We celebrated the day with a Dairy Queen cake and a little token of our appreciation. Roger and Helen are appreciated for sharing in the party, and adding their talents.
Wednesday proved to be a little messy with all the snow that fell, and our beauty shop had to start a little later than usual. But ultimately, it got done, and everyone was made pretty for Thanksgiving Day. St. John’s hosted Bingo in the afternoon, so we kinda played come and go with the residents between Bingo and the beauty shop. No one wanted to miss either one! Jack and Nancy helped out with Bingo on such a nasty day.
Several guests came and spent Thanksgiving Day with their family members. The kitchen put on quite a spread. From what I heard, it was delicious!
Friday was popcorn day, and the maintenance department brought up all the Christmas decorations so we can get ready for the next holiday starting Monday!
