Activities in Action

Hello from Activities!  Can you believe it is August already?  I can’t!  The kids will be back in school before we know it!  Hoping this school year will bring more activities with the kids around our community.

We are loving our bus rides out and about.  We will continue to take a few rides throughout the month.  A few places we will visit this month are Beaver Park and the city of Marion.  Other activities you will find us doing this month are yarned wrapped lighthouses, horse racing, noodle hockey, sandpaper painting, pressed flower craft, reminiscing with songs inspired by the sea, banana split social, and remembering how to swim.

Indian Creek will be here August 11th to do an insect and butterfly demonstration.  If the weather permits, we will be outside the LTC patio.  This month’s visit from Marci’s Memorables will be from Carrie Chapman Catt, this will be on August 18th at 2:30pm in the 200-hall dining room.

We are excited to partner with Horizons and deliver Meals on Wheels to those in need in our community.  We plan on starting to deliver on August 6th and will deliver bi-weekly.  Please let Pam or Ashley know if you are interested in riding along to deliver meals.  We are looking forward to helping those in our community.

Here are the entertainers lined up for our 3:00pm happy hour this month!  August 6th will be door to door or small groups (due to Covid precautions), August 13th is Betty Debban on the Piano, August 20th is The George Jazz Trio, and to finish off the month, Harold Gray will be preforming on August 27th.  Hope to see you all there!
