Celebrations and Events
Our front lobby was decorated for Valentine’s with a Valentine tree. Residents and staff enjoyed adding the decorations and reminiscing about past Valentine’s Days with their family and sweethearts.
Annual Ice Cream Social
To end the summer, our facility hosts an annual ice cream social. Residents and their families look forward to this event and it is always well attended. We serve ice cream with all the fixings in our lower level courtyard. Usually we have entertainment such as vocalist, a clown, or a band.

Our Thankful Tree
In November, we celebrate Thanksgiving and all that we are thankful for with a Thankful Tree in our front lobby. Residents, families, visitors and staff write what they are thankful for on leaves and add them to the tree for all to see.
Holiday Open House
During the Christmas Season we open our doors, welcoming family and friends to enjoy our hospitaility starting with heavy hor ‘dourves and ending in a surprise visit from Santa. For many, this event is often the highlight of the season.
The Candle Light Vigil
Each year, during the month of December, we hold a candle light vigil in memory of residents and employees who have passed away. As part of the memorial we light a tree in the front of the facility that stays lit until after Christmas. It is a very special celebration of life and loss and many families return year after year. Despite the solemn reason for this gathering our staff and residents enjoy reuniting with old friends and sharing fond memories of those no longer with us.
