Our senior living residents are going to LOVE all of these.   Thank you Martha and Paula for your respective donations.  
  • National Red Nose Day. Then, of course, on Thursday, May 21st is "Red Nose Day" nationwide.   We will post photos of staff and residents in Red Noses.  I'll take the "staged" photos first and let the residents (who wish to) wear the red noses all day on the 21st.  I'll see how much interest we can generate in this project.   

Of course, as soon as the activity calendar for assisted living is published, someone fabulous will call to schedule something extraordinary. If so, Activities Director Aimee Dubuisson will get it scheduled. All is done to provide quality activities for seniors in assisted living.
