Friday March 1, 2019 - March Happenings at the Care Center and Fun Photos

The days are getting longer, and the residents are anxious for Spring. In the meantime, we have been having fun indoors with craft projects, music, and a lot of intergenerational activities in February. It’s a joy to see the interactions of the elders with the children who come to visit the
Care Center. I happened to overhear a conversation between a resident and a kindergartener at a recent craft event. The resident was unable to draw a heart, and the little one offered to do it for her. The resident smiled, and said that she would like that very much. Together they decided on the colors to use, and both worked on completing it. Both were proud of their work of art. There may have been a 90 year age difference, but the friendship made was ageless.

There will be a lot of fun activities in March starting with Mardi Gras Happy Hour with Hilja on Fat Tuesday, March 5. The residents will be doing some St. Patrick’s Day crafts, and we’ll have “Pot of Gold” Bingo on March 14 to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

We have plenty of games planned to fill those wintry March afternoons too. Lucky 7 is a popular favorite with the residents along with crossword games, trivia fun, and hangman games.

The residents will be able to do some Spring clothes shopping on March 8 without leaving the Care Center! A representative of the”LuLaRoe” line of clothing will be here with a variety of comfortable clothing for the elders to try on and purchase.

There will be a special presentation on March 21 at 10:00 a.m. when Jo Wood will visit the Care Center to demonstrate and talk with the residents about her unique art work.

We’re hoping for a warm, sunny day on March 28th when we have an outing planned to have lunch with our friends at the Senior Center.

There will be a variety of music events in March. Ariana will play her violin for the residents on March 12 at 2:00 p.m. On March 19, Tim Haus will perform at the Care Center at 2:00 pm., John Gruber will join us on March 25 at 2:00 p.m. and Marco Good will be here on March 26 at 2:00 p.m. Portage Band will host a dance on Saturday March 30 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Myron Bursheim will play on Sunday afternoons, and Susan Scherer will be here on Wednesday afternoons. Family and friends are welcome to join us for any of our music events.

The residents are hoping that March “goes out like a lamb”, as we start to think about some spring gardening projects. On March 25, we’ll be planting some flower seeds indoors, with the hope that they will be in full bloom when the warmer weather finally arrives!
