Tonight was such a fun night for the Residents who decided to go out dancing. Their was live music, food, wine and plenty of conversations.
Thank you San Carlos Adult Community Center for putting it on it was such a great turn out! We are all looking forward to your next event.
Well, it's safe to say it, we like to have fun. No matter what we are celebrating.
We had a Valentine's Day Party today that just did not want to end. The Residents are going to have a fabulous meal tonight and after dinner we are going dancing.
I think we are all going to be sleeping in tomorrow.
Happy Valentine's Day! Enjoy our pictures below.

The Brownie Troop from Arundel School came by yesterday afternoon to sing to our residents and give all of them cookies. They first went around the room telling everyone their name and sharing their favorite color and asked the Residents to do the same, what was great is everyone participated.
The girls sang happy birthday twice once for Claire and the other for George.
Then, they sang "You are my Sunshine", Make New Friends", and "If Your Happy and You Know It". All the Residents participated in singing.
Finally, we all enjoyed a cookie to end a fun visit and hope to see them soon.
Thank you Brownie Troop. Also Thank you to the mom's for all your support too!

Claire and George are two of our "mature" volunteers. If you add their ages together you would get 197years. Claire donates some of her time playing the piano to our resident in the Memory Program on Wednesday afternoons. George volunteers his time painting picture for the residents that he shares and displays throughout The Elms.
Happy Birthday Claire and George!
You are an inspiration to us all!!!
Claire visit's her friends June and Dorothy every Wednesday and has lunch with them in The Elms before she plays the piano.

Today we celebrated Ann Rugge's 100th Birthday in our Memory Program. When Ann's family celebrates a birthday they go all out. The entire family was here to wish Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma, or friend Ann a happy Birthday. We celebrated with strawberry cake, flowers and Ann's family invited the Little Explore Petting Zoo to come. It was a fun and exciting afternoon!
Happy 100th Birthday Ann!
