Father’s Day celebrated with hot dogs, burgers

Jun 22, 2018

The weekly church services were provided by Minister Dan Drost, Reformed Presbyterian Church, representing the Reformed Presbyterian Church. The sermon was titled “Creation Fulfilled”. The Scripture was from Ezekiel 36:8-15.

The residents were treated to lunch with a baseball theme in honor of Father’s Day on Friday, June 15. We served grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, along with all of the fixings!

Several team members also dressed in baseball jerseys and baseball caps. Thank you so much to Denny Sorrell, for helping to grill on such a warm day. Special desserts for the day in Wedgewood were homemade cupcakes brought in to celebrate Bonny Bonnell’s Birthday, as well. Also on the 15th, we celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary. Don and Marjorie Kline celebrated with a special cake for dessert in Rosewood, along with many memories brought in that were parts of their big day, including Marjorie’s wedding dress as well as 50 year old left over wedding cake! Marjorie’s family was here to help them celebrate.

On Monday June 18, at Trivia we celebrated “Hershey’s Chocolate Day.” We started out with a chocolate word search finding words like cacao and fudge. The treat for this chocolatyprogram was chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven and a glass of cold milk. Trivia is always shared and we learned that there are more than 80 million kisses made every day at the Hershey plants. In 1942, production of the Hershey’s Kisses brand chocolate was halted to save foil for the war effort. Ending this delicious program were the rules of Chocolate.

Rule number one “If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you’re eating it too slow.

The residents of Halcyon House were treated with a performance by the “Keota Brass Band” in Wedgewood. Thirty-four residents and visitors attended this wonderful concert; followed by refreshments. The band is made up of four musicians; Gary McCurdy on tuba, Tom Hahn plays the trombone and vocals, Stan Knipher on guitar along with Roger Richardson with the trumpet and vocals. This is such a fun and enjoyable time for all. We all listened to familiar tunes and helped sing along to the upbeat music.

Route 66 participants celebrated traveling (exercising) over 120,000 minutes on Thursday, June 20 in the Applewood Bistro. Wellness Coordinator, Megan Richardson with Jocelyn and Sadie Carter decorated the Bistro with black and white checkered flag streamers, route 66 signs and construction cones. The residents were served root beer floats at the refueling station along with fresh grapes, cheese and cupcakes. The participants received bright red Route 66 t-shirts for all their hard work on the Route 66 Fitness Road Trip! Congratulations, Route 66’er’s!

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Rose Mary Worley, Darlene Flynn, Don Gardner, and Betty Quinn.
