  Carnival February 26, 2015  

We decided to change things up this year, so instead of a Talent Show, we had a carnival.
Molly did an incredible job of planning and everyone had GREAT fun!!
We even invited Joyce (our nurse who retired a few years ago) and she read the residents' fortunes.
There was face painting, picture taking, and games.
LOTS and LOTS of FUN!!!

  Choraleers February 11, 2015  

It is that time of year again and I have to admit I am really excited! The Choraleers are starting to rehearse for our 6th year of performing. It is hard to believe but our very first performance was in 2010. We have some great new songs we are practicing.
We look forward to getting back on the road and spreading cheer!


  No Winter Time Blues February 6, 2015

  Its cold outside but WARM in here January 13, 2015  

It has been really cold here! So the best way to beat the cold--WARM FOOD of course!! Ashley, Frank, and Mike participated in Food Group the other day. They made some yummy lasagna from scratch. Nothing comforts the stomach like pasta--RIGHT?
There was much comforting going on as the Food Group made lasagna and then enjoyed their feast!!
