ESTEVAN - In keeping with the St. Patrick’s Day theme, there was a St. Patrick’s Day coin hunt at Hill View Manor.
A prize was given to the resident who found the largest number of green shamrock coins. All prizes were green in colour to stay with the day’s theme. What a great time. Also, it can become a little competitive for all residents who take part.
Other activities for the month included daily Bingo, exercises three to four times per week to help us stay fit, card games, movies, crokinole, bowling, bean bag toss, Yahtzee and shuffleboard. Shared read is a group activity we do a couple of times a week for anyone who may be a little visually impaired or might just want to listen to the short stories.
Catholic mass and Lutheran communion are held once per month. These are always the first Wednesday of the month. The Estevan Public Library visits our home the second Tuesday of the month for anyone wishing to sign out a book or an audio book.
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 have been to Walmart and Black Beard’s Restaurant for lunch. We also went to Make Music with Friends. This is a favorite outing; the music is wonderful and enjoyed by all who attend.
In March we celebrated three birthdays: Alvin G. (89), Janet T. (81) and Audrey B. (86). Happy birthday to all.
Entertainment this month was courtesy of the Caragana Ramblers, Wilma and Val, Keith and Gary, the Szakacs Family and Susan Shepard.
Hill View Manor provides a warm, welcoming, home-like atmosphere, where residents will find wonderful cooking and baking smells daily. Good times and lots of laughter are enjoyed by all; we are one big family.
