Hello February from Activities! Did you know that February is National Heart Month? To raise awareness for cardiovascular disease we ask that staff and residents wear RED on Friday, February 7th.  

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with our annual Valentine Royalty Luncheon. Voting for our Valentine King, Queen, Prince and Princess will take place February 3rd through the 7th. Voting is open to staff, residents, and families. Winners will be crowned Monday February 10th. Family members of the “Royal Family” will be invited to attend our Valentine luncheon on February 14th. The menu for the luncheon is: chicken cordon blue, twice baked potatoes, asparagus with bacon, and fresh bread.  If chicken cordon blue isn’t your specialty, the alternative is shrimp scampi. Dessert will be chocolate covered strawberry cheesecake. YUM!

Activities are keeping very busy during the month of February. February 9th – 15th is Random Acts of Kindness Week. The residents will be showing ways of kindness by handing out different crafts they will be making. Chef Kevin will be doing a food demo on the 18th with music to follow. We will also try a new no bake fudge recipe. National Margarita Day will be celebrated a day early on Friday the 21st following Bingo. Our annual Mardi Gras party we be held on the 25th at 2:15 pm with food, drinks, music, and fun facts about Mardi Gras traditions. To end the month, residents will play a leapfrog bean bag game on Saturday, February 29th (Leap Day).
