Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great holiday season with loved ones. We kept the residents busy with many parties, carolers, and holiday crafts. Our Christmas party was held on the 18th of December. Each and every resident received a present thanks to our staff and some community members. I would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time with us during the holiday season.

During the month of January, we celebrate National Activity Professionals week January 19th-25th. I would like to thank Donna Vanzile for all of her hard work. Activities are very important for our residents. They provide continuing education, social interactions, exercise for both the body and mind, and enhance quality of life. MNRC provides activities Monday-Friday at 9:30 AM, 10:00 AM, and 2:15 PM. Every month we do two weekend activities and one-night activity. Bingo, baking, happy hour, spa day, bus trips, games, crafts, music and church services are some of the activities you will see on our monthly calendar. If you see or know someone that provides activities, please take time out of your busy day to tell them thanks!
