Thursday June 1, 2017 - June Activities at the Care Center

Click here to download our June 2017 Activities Calendar - you can also visit our
Calendar of Events and download our events to your phone, tablet or computer.

The residents at the Care Center are certainly looking forward to the warmer weather, and the new areas they will soon have to enjoy - both inside and out. A most welcome addition will be a new patio area to be completed soon. Everyone is anxious to get outside for gardening, activities on the patio, or just enjoying the sunshine and birds. Our first completed household is scheduled to open soon, and the residents are excited about the new kitchen and large living area they will have to enjoy. Some of the elders are already picking out their favorite recipes, as we plan to do some baking on those rainy days!
During the Volunteer Brunch, Nora Bockovich presented Walt Mianowski with a plaque honoring him for over 30 years of volunteer service at the Care Center.
The residents at the Care Center enjoyed a delightful afternoon of music when "The Flute Reed Ramblers" came to perform recently.

One of the first activities that the residents have planned is to bake pumpkin bars for the construction workers as a "thanks" for their hard work in completing our first household. A "Break Time with Boldt" is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. on June 27.

We look forward to working with student volunteers from the Incredible Exchange Program starting in June. It is always fun to have the youth of our community come and participate in the activities with the residents.
There was a good turnout for the Volunteer Brunch on May 17. Pictured here (left to right) Al Fuller, Karen, and Don Goodell.

Another fun visitor in June will be "Remedy Rose," Lisa Bloomquist's new little bunny, who will visit the Care Center on June 10 at 2:00 p.m. for some quality "cuddle time."

The monthly birthday party will be held on June 14 at 3:00 p.m. to honor Donna Willett. Cake and ice cream will be served along with some great piano classics by Doug Sanders.

Some old-fashioned hillbilly fun is scheduled for June 20 through 24. There will be a "Hillbilly Happy Hour with Hilja" on June 20 at 2:30 p.m. A "Hillbilly Hoe Down" lunch is being planned for June 21 with some good home style cooking. "Hoe Down Bingo" is scheduled for June 22 at 2:30 p.m. and on June 24, some good laughs will be had watching "The Beverly Hillbillies" and enjoying some popcorn.

We have two outings planned for June. We're hoping for a nice day on June 19 for an outing to Harbor Park, and some treats from the Dairy Queen to enjoy while watching activities on the Big Lake! On June 29, the elders will be going to the Senior Center for lunch, and to visit with our friends there.

There will be plenty of music in June too. Irene Thompson will be joining us every Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m., playing all our old favorites on the piano. Pastor Darren Blank will be back on June 12 at 2:00 p.m. for a gospel sing-a-long. Myron Bursheim will be here on Sunday, June 18 and June 25 at 2:30 p.m. Al Fuller joins us every Monday at 5:30 p.m., and Susan Scherer will be here on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. We welcome family, friends and the community to join us at any of our music events.
