Special Events

What a beautiful fall day it was for a Carnival. Our residents delighted with the dunk tank, chocolate pie eating contest, dancing clowns, face painting, ping pong toss, cake walk, blacksmith demo and music by DJ Rob, along with many fun games. The more games you played, the more raffles tickets you earned and chances to win prizes!

Lunch was served outside with cotton candy and popcorn offered. Our staff disguised themselves dressing as a fortune teller, stylish, colorful psychedelic clowns, and Cookie as a cookie. It was an old-fashioned fun day outside at its best.

Pub time

Pub time is a place where residents get to sit down and discuss how there day has been, all while enjoying a glass of wine, the drink of the night or whatever quench's their thirst. Usually an appetizer will be served by out amazing kitchen staff, with music being played either by a guest or our well rounded activities department.
