This morning we held a Round Table Meeting, inviting everyone from like communities or occupations for a lecture that was given by The Institute of Aging .
Then we had plenty of time to network and give tours.
The Elms dining staff did an amazing job with the breakfast. Bagels, locks, fruit cups and pastries were enjoyed by all.
Our Marketing Director June, did a wonderful job organizing the whole event.
June's favorite part of the Round Table is giving out the raffle prizes at the end.
We gave away two throws and a large baking dish.
This month Mayor Ron Collins came into The Elms to keep them updated on what is going on in their city.
The Mayor is a very busy man and we appreciate all the time he takes to inform our Residents and to field any questions they might have.
Thank you again Mayor Ron Collins for keeping our Residents informed about everything in the city they live in.

In our Memory Program at San Carlos Elms we have a lot of special visitors.
This month we had a Girl Scout Troop come in and give each Resident a bouquet of flowers.
Then, they spend some time with each Resident.
We also have a nice size volunteer group here at San Carlos Elms.
They help with reading to the residents.
They help with painting and puzzles.
They even help with hair styling.
The Residents even enjoy getting together for lunches.
This one marked the 19th anniversary of San Carlos Elms being open.
