Some of our men came together for card games and ice cream. Sometimes, a man needs a guys’ night out (or in).
News & Updates
We had a student from Jackson County High School volunteer to help our elders build a home for the ‘Wendy Bird.’ In Peter Pan, the Lost Boys shoot down what they thought was a bird, but was actually Wendy falling from the sky. Because she was unconscious, they decided to build a house around her. Our elders are working on their own interpretation of the Wendy Bird’s house. It is still unfinished, but when it is completed, we will post updated pictures!
We got a new Queen and King this year: Robin Neeley and Bobby Thomas. We had lots of laughs, fun, food, and ended with karaoke. Special thanks to Beth and Linda our wonderful volunteers and our nurse aids for helping get out ladies and men all dressed up. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!
Our residents enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of music and painting!
For National Paul Bunyan Day, we read the Tall Tale of Paul Bunyan. We also read an account of how this story originated. Afterwards, our elders helped color in our own Paul Bunyan character, and then they worked together to create their own tall tale.
Sunday, February 10th, was National Man’s Day. To honor the men in their lives, elders decorated and wore tie cut outs.
Friday, February 8th, was National Boy Scouts Day. Our elders recognized this day by creating their own group: The Lost Boys’ Scouts, in keeping with the Never Grow up: A Timeslips Story theme. They created their own merit badges, which hang along the wall beside the Lost Boys’ hideout with their acknowledgment certificate.
Thursday, February 7th, was National Periodic Table Day. To honor this, residents learned about chemical reactions by growing crystal rocks and trees for their fairy garden.
Some of our elders opted to go shopping today at the local Dollar General. The sun was shining and the air was warm – a great enjoyment for February. Everyone had a good time and came back with lots of goodies.
