The activity department is very busy with the next few holidays coming up. Thanks again to Camp Courageous for inviting us to their annual Holiday Party. We will be attending this on November 26th from 1:30 to 3:00 pm. Residents look forward to this party every year where they get to enjoy singing Christmas carols, hot coca, a visit from Santa, and socializing with friends.
Families are welcome to come join their loved ones for lunch on Thanksgiving Day. We ask that families please call by the 20th to reserve your spot. The meal will cost $10.00 per family member. The lunch menu will include: turkey or ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, scalloped corn, roll and pumpkin pie.
Christmas is right around the corner. We will be decorating for Christmas on the 2nd and 3rd of December. Volunteers are welcome and appreciated. If you are interested in helping us decorate we will start at 10:00 am. Lunch will be provided for those who help decorate! Feel free to call if you have any questions about volunteering (319-465-5415).
The angel tree will be put up in the break room during the 3rd week in November. Each year staff choose a resident/s “angel” to purchase a Christmas present for. Every resident will receive a present that will be delivered by Santa during our Resident Christmas party. Community members and families are welcome to donate presents to go towards our “angels”. If you would like to donate a present, please have this to Jenn by December 13th.
We will have more information coming out about our Family Christmas Party. Be on the look out for the invitation to come in the mail. We greatly appreciate those who RSVP, so we know how much food to prepare. Please note that we only send an invitation to the Power of Attorney (POA). This does not mean other family members are not invited. Please share the information with others in your family.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
