Fritz and Patti came to visit us here at Twin Rivers. They perform some tricks for us and went to visit each and every one of us that were there! Thank you Nancy for sharing your beautiful German Shepherds with us…
The “crafters” at Twin Rivers had a lesson in watercolor for making our April raindrops! Each one had their paint, water, brush & practice paper to learn some watercolor techniques before starting in on the raindrops. Not only was it a fun learning experience, our raindrops turned out just beautiful – each one unique! We even had a rainy day to do the project! Placed in the dining room with the giant umbrellas we decorated, it looks like a whimsical April showers day! Today, as it rains & pours outside, we will decorate rain boots to complete the April scene in the dining room! I am so proud of our “crafters” at Twin Rivers & the effort they put into our projects! Our crafts bring a personal touch to our dining room that all the residents enjoy!
This month was filled with fun activities and great entertainment. Some highlights of this month are the Shamrocks and rainbows they made for the dining room decorations to homemade beef stew and men’s woodworking group. Then came Easter and the dining room was filled with little chicks and Easter Bunnies with grass to making fuzzy bunnies and little bunny and duckling baskets! It was a fun filled month!
“That sure brings back memories”…….is what I heard time after time from our residents Saturday night at our “Summer Dreamin’” supper & entertainment hour.
The velvety voice of Tim Patrick sent everyone into a different time; a time of ballroom dancing with their “sweetheart” on Saturday night; a time when love was in the air.
Tim Patrick‘s voice rivals that of Frank Sinatra or Andy Williams & everyone truly enjoyed the evening performance. With lemonade & lemonade cocktails served there was definitely some “Summer Dreamin” goin’ on!
It’s times like this as the activities coordinator for Twin Rivers, that I feel truly blessed to bring moments like this to our residents.
What’s better on a cold winter’s day than homemade soup? We gathered together to chop and stir up a wonderful fresh vegetable soup! Luckily, we had Pete Remme show up for our cooking group, with his own utensils in hand! He had the honor of chopping up our head of cabbage – and he did a great job too! Fresh carrots, onion, red potatoes, green beans, , home canned tomatoes & garlic all went into our soup. But, our “special” ingredient that made our soup so delicious, was a bottle of dark German beer! Everyone enjoyed eating a bowl of our “creation” and left with another bowl to take home for later! And as you all know, the next day it will be even better! Mmmmmmmmm good!!
