Today was National Gorgeous Grandma Day, giving us a wonderful excuse to do hair, make up, and nails. Our ladies joined together for a relaxing make over to celebrate the beautiful women they are!
July 20th was National Woodie Wagon Day. Our elders enjoyed sharing their stories of driving or encountering a woodie wagon when they were younger. This day brought back many fond memories for them.
Jackson Manor’s elders created yellow pigs out of washcloths to celebrate Yellow Pig Day. In the 1960s, a couple of mathematicians from Princeton were researching the number 17. At some point in their research, they created the concept of a yellow pig. Now, people who love math celebrate the number 17 and the yellow pig every July 17th.
Signature HealthCARE at Jackson Manor visited with Horizon Adult Day Care in McKee. We played Bingo and enjoyed each others company.
We love our Jackson County Library Bookmobile. Big shout out to Georgia Million, we appreciate all that you do for us. We look forward to seeing you each month.

On Saturday, July 6th, our elders recognized World Kiss Day with an art project entitled “A Kiss is Electrifying.” Using a straw, the elders blew water colors in different directions onto a character wearing a big kiss. This made the “hair” appear to stand on end. Our residents enjoyed the activity very much.
