Resident Poem

A Fun Party
By Rosemary Bishop
Kathleen has the tables all set.
Thousands of hearts were all around.
She did it before we all met.
Cookies and choice of drinks did abound.

The necklace lady told me-
“Valentines Day party was fun”
Everyone was happy that I would see
Lou said she was “the happiest one”

The craft room was crowded.
There were no empty seats
Joy couldn’t be doubled!
One could not hear any heart beats!

Dorothy said “We’re having fun.”
Marge said “watching people”
No one could find the sun
or hear bells in a steeple.

One nice man couldn’t remember his name.
Henry said it was James or Jim.
Both work the same-
We all laughed with him.

If you missed the party—too bad!
Just wait a whole year.
You have a right to feel sad.
Such memories we hold dear.

Ann's 101'st Birthday Celebration

Happy 101st Birthday Ann!

The birthday lady, Ann can't believe this is all for her.
A group photo of Ann and her family that was able to attend.
Shirley sharing a moment with her mom making sure the tiara stays on.
Ann had no trouble blowing her candles out.

Ann received some help when it came time to cut the cake to hand out to all her friends that came down for the big celebration.
