Halloween Still Going Strong at San Carlos Elms

We had a fantastic Halloween Party this afternoon filled with music, treats, and games.
 




Ludmilla scared the receptionist at the front desk with her costume.

Mabel had us questioning, do pigs really wear blankets?

Nellie was happy to win the spider target game today with a score of 130 points! Nellie got one of the spiders right on the target, way to go!
Congratulations to all who participated. Henry, Nellie, and Karen you all did a great job!
 
Dorothy said she had to leave the party she had too much fun.

Some of the staff got into the spirit as well,
Raul, Kathleen, Ana, and June,
Happy Halloween from San Carlos Elms!

San Carlos Elms Residents Prepare for their Trick or Treaters

Each year the residents assemble trick or treat bags for our visitors on Halloween night. We had a lot of fun socializing and fun assembling the goody bags. While the residents were busy creating they were treated themselves to hot apple cider and a pastry.
 
Irene, Carolyn, and Betty were some of the first residents to start.

Then many joined in, thankfully we had a volunteer to help.

Joan had fun.

So did Beth.

San Carlos Elms Enjoys a Night Out on the Town

Last night was a perfect evening for a walk down to Laurel St. for a little bit of shopping, fresh air and dinner out. We all had a great time looking at all the shops on Laurel St. looking for just the right costume for Halloween.
Then to finish the night we went to a local restaurant on Laurel St. and we had a fantastic time! Laughing and getting to know new people that had just moved in, it was a wonderful experience.
 
 
Merel tried on a couple items, but she enjoyed this one the most.



Dorothy was trying to get Boris to give her a bite of his dessert,
 
but Boris enjoyed the entire dessert that his wife Irene has surprised him with.

Don had a great evening, he even carried my purse home for me. What a gentleman.
