From the Director’s Chair
The Great Snack War…
Please be mindful of others when partaking of snacks that are placed in the Gathering Room. These are meant to be for all residents to share.
We will be very busy this week with activities both on-site and off-site. You are welcome to invite family and/or friends to partake of our activities during this holiday season.
Last Thursday, a delivery truck rammed into our porte-cochere causing quite a bit of damage. The area has been cleaned up and is safe and free of obstructions. The front entry remains open and fully accessible. Pardon our mess while we prepare for repairs on the porte-cochere. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Chef Tim is planning some special menus for our Christmas Party Dinner, Christmas Eve and Day, as well as New Year’s Eve and Day! If you have any special requests, please get them in to Chef Tim as soon as possible.
If you are planning guests for any of our holiday meals, please be aware that our holiday guest meal rates have risen a bit to $15 per person, and we need at least 72 hour notice of guests for these meals. Thank you for your cooperation!
Look for your Ice Cream Social Sign Up Sheet Tuesday and be sure to fill it out and return it. If you have special requests, feel free to write them in on the bottom of the sign up sheet!
As the holidays are fast approaching, Lafayette will still be making her weekly trips to Kroger for groceries and such. If you need anything, please reach out to her with a list and form of payment. She typically does this shopping on Tuesday.
If you would like to go shopping at the mall, or a specific store for Christmas gifts, etc…let us know. We can arrange a day of shopping for residents. We love getting the bus out and about!
