Holidays at San Carlos Elms

 We might not be able to celebrate like we normally do this holiday season, but that is not keeping our spirits down.

We have the building decorated for the holidays and hope you may enjoy some of our holiday cheer.

Thank you to Sharilyn and Micheal for donating the lovely holiday packages and for our Mr. & Mrs. Snowman by our Grandfather clock.

Connie was able to put a couple of ornaments on the tree.
Helen was able to help out too.
Thank you to all of the residents and staff who helped make the tree look so beautiful!

Veterans Day

 San Carlos Elms would like to thank Kindred Hospice, San Carlos Boy Scout Troop 321 and San Carlos Pack 65 for making this a Veterans Day we will always remember. 

Thank you also to the American Legion Auxiliary for donating poppies for us to have for our Residents.

Due to social distancing we were creative this Veterans Day.

Dawn from Kindred Hospice had a beautiful ceremony for our Residents yesterday. She brought each of our Residents whom served a certificate, a poem written by presenter from Air Force Veteran, Service Officer Honor Guard and American Legion Chaplin from Santa Clara Sunny Dosanjh and a pin to honor each service member.

Boy Scout Troop 321 and Pack 65 presented the colors this morning out in front of The Elms. We all said the Pledge of Allegiance, Luke played the National Anthem on his saxophone and Kyle played taps on his bugle. The Troop then retired their colors and waved at The Elms.

Please take the time to enjoy some moments caught on camera.


 

Some families asked to be apart of the ceremony too.
