Labor Day Celebration and Raffle –
Monday, September 4th /All Day Staff Only/All Day
Observed the first Monday in September, Labor Day is an annual celebration of American workers’ social and economic achievements. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize workers’ many contributions to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. We honor the staff of The Phoenix with raffles for t-shirts, gift cards, and goodies. Thank you for your hard work. You are the backbone of the Phoenix and are truly appreciated.
National Chocolate Day –
Wednesday, September 13th, Unit to Unit in the Afternoon Staff & Residents
Chocolate or cocoa is a food made from roasted and ground cacao seed kernels that is available as a liquid, solid, or paste, either on its own or as a flavoring agent in other foods. Cacao has been consumed in some form since at least the Olmec civilization (19th–11th century BCE). The Chocolatiers (AKA the Recreation Staff) will be distributing chocolate bars, chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, and chocolate cupcakes to residents and staff. Enjoy the sweetness of the day.
Guess Who I Am…Baby Guessing Game – Display – Staff & Residents
Main Dining Room, Month of September
Seeing your friends or coworkers as adorable little squashy-faced babies in funny poses is fun. In September, photos of staff as infants and children (less than 2 years old) will be displayed in the main dining room. Residents and staff will be asked to guess who the babies/infants in the photos are. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize winners. The participants who guess the most pictures correctly will receive a gift card and a slice of cake from Juniors to sweeten the pot.
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.
