Each year our Residents can't wait to receive their yearbooks. We have a special New Year in Review party in mid to late January to make sure we have all of the end of the year photos in our yearbook.
This year we had a great party, thanks to our dining staff we had wonderful hors d'oeuvres and drinks.
Residents were pleased with their yearbooks and enjoyed all the photos of the year on the T.V. screens during the celebration.
We look forward making new memories this year.
Muriel was excited about her yearbook.
Shirley enjoyed the drinks we had.
Rosalie was learning more about her friends.
The room got quiet for a moment when the yearbooks were handed out.
You can see Sue enjoying the pictures of 2019 on the T.V. screen.

San Carlos Elms was happy to be a part of Week of the Family again this year.
Students and Residents made Valentine Day cards for our Veterans at the local VA.
Receiving 2019 "Citizen of the Year", Susan Rose was a huge help setting up the afternoon with our Residents.
Residents enjoyed making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for Street Life Ministries.
They also had fun making plenty of Valentine Day cards.
What beautiful cards!
The sandwiches look delicious!
Thank you for everyone who attended San Carlos Elms Week of the Family afternoon.
We look forward to next year.
