National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, Tuesday, June 7th
Calling all units, residents, and staff… Creamy chocolate ice cream, syrup, whipped cream, blueberry or strawberry topping, chocolate crunchies, and a cherry on top. Who can resist an ice cream sundae? The sundae ice cream cart will be making the rounds on all units in the PM as residents, staff, and family partake in this delicious event. “A sundae can hold a special place in your heart… and your spoon” – Unknown.
Juneteenth, Sunday, June 19th
Videos all day throughout the building. Juneteenth Day celebrates and symbolizes the end of slavery in the United States. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22nd, 1862. Not until June 19th, 1865, all slaves were finally freed. That concluding event was when General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas, with his troops and issued Order Number 3, which finally freed the last slaves. The formal end of slavery was marked by the passing of the 13th amendment of the constitution. “We must learn to live together as brothers, or perish as fools” – Martin Luther King Jr.
Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19th, Gift Give-Away all Day
We celebrate our fathers on this day with entertainment and a give-away for our fathers. Join us for great music, tributes, and sunglasses as gifts. Entertainment will take place in the main dining room at 2:30 pm. Come and join us. “Thanks for kissing all the booboos, killing all the spiders, and generally making me feel safe and loved every day of my life. I love you, Dad!” – Women’s Day
Summer Solstice Celebration, Tuesday, June 21st
At the summer solstice, the sun travels the longest path through the sky, and that day has the most daylight. The staff will be receiving plants that residents helped plant and nurture. The resident gardeners become caregivers rather than care receivers, contribute to a better environment, and leave their Legacy in the world. The residents nurture their nature. “The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.” – Alfred Austin.
As we practice proper social distancing protocols in our community, we are proud to feature modified programming to continue providing vibrancy for our residents and employees.
