ESTEVAN - December was exciting. We recently had a few new residents come into our home, including Ivadelle G., Bob S. and Les H. Welcome to our home.
Many activities are planned for January exercises, including Bingo, card games, crokinole, bowling, bean bag toss, shuffleboard and magnetic darts, to list a few.
The last Friday of the month is loonie Bingo, followed by wine and cheese or fruit juice for anyone not wanting wine.
Outings this month were to Make Music with Friends, an all-time favourite.
In January, we have one birthday. Anne J. Celebrated her 94th birthday. Happy birthday to Anne.
January has seen our home have to say good-bye to a couple of long-time residents, Rose Z. and Adaline D. They will be missed by all.
Events for January are another outing to Make Music with Friends. Also will be an outing to Walmart and Blackbeard’s Restaurant for lunch.
Entertainment this month are the Caragana Rambler’s, Laurie Fornwald, Lisa Kuntz, Wilma and Val, Keith and Gary, the Szakacs Family and Susan Shepard.
In December, an ice cream birthday social was enjoyed by the residents. It was a great time with ice cream and visiting for everyone.
Dec. 23 was our resident Christmas party. Thank you Wilma and Val for the beautiful music and sing-a-long. There were gifts to open for everyone. The excitement and awe of the residents was great, they were all so very happy and appreciative of the gifts received.
Thank you to the secret Santa tree at Recharge. It was a great job, and the gifts that were given by the secret Santa’s put a smile on the faces of all. What a great gift that was.
December continued to be wonderful, as the residents enjoyed a Twinkle tour on the 28th. Everyone truly enjoyed the nice weather and the beautiful light displays around the city. The Festival of Lights in Woodlawn Regional Park was spectacular. The residents were delighted with the evening.
Thank you to all who light up our city so beautifully.
Dec. 30 was the New Year’s Eve party for our residents; what a great time. Entertainment was provided by the Can’t Hardly Wait Playboys. Lunch was served after our entertainment. The ball was dropped at 9 p.m. and noisemakers were blown. Fun was had by all.
Thank you to all who helped the residents of our home have a very merry Christmas.
Happy New Year to all from our home to yours.
