When Lindsay comes in with a craft, you better be ready to create and possibly get a little dirty.
Today Lindsay painted bird houses with the Residents.
They all had their own personality. Some had checkered roofs, while others painted flowers on them. Some were bright red, while others painted a light pink.
Thank you Lindsay for always making your visits FUN!!!

Our house dog "Curley" is 10 years old this weekend.
We had a birthday party for our special dog.
Curley has volunteered his time here at San Carols Elms for the past eight years.
The Residents can't get enough of him.
He is the best medicine!!!
Becky giving Curley a birthday squeeze.
Dennis loves to go on afternoon walks with Curley.
Curley blew out his own candles, ok maybe he had a little help.
He didn't need any help eating it,
he loves his whip cream.
Happy Birthday Curley, Thank you for all you do for our Residents.
We had such a great time at Mimi's Café.
Good food and great company!
It is always fun to go out for lunch from time to time.
Alyce, Margie, Don and Grace had wonderful conversations.
Reno & Betty's first lunch outing with the group.
Thank you Mimi's Café for all your help!!!

This morning to celebrate our Resident Veterans we had a Veterans Day Ceremony.
We sang patriotic songs, shared stories and took time to remember those Veterans who are no longer with us. Thank you to the American Legion Auxiliary District 8, Unit 510 for making and donating poppy corsages for our Veteran spouses, flag pins with ribbon and poppies for everyone.
Thank you to all our Veterans each and everyday!

Henry and Helen were sharing some of their memories after the ceremony was completed.
Each Resident received a program to follow along with the songs.
They also enjoyed seeing who else served in their branch and possibly with them.
