San Carlos Elms Celebrates and Takes a Look Back on 2015

This year the Residents decided to have a "Year in Review Party" with champagne, apple cider, cake, music and of course the distribution of the 2015 yearbooks.
Each Resident received a yearbook and enjoyed taking a look back at everything that they had accomplished in 2015.
They also enjoyed seeing the pictures showed to them on the television screens. We had a great time and look forward to see what 2016 has in store for us!!!
Happy New Year to you all, from San Carlos Elms.
