  • Home Notes: June full of fun, laughs at Thanksgiving Home

    Emerson said, “The earth laughs in flowers.” Now that the summer sun has returned, there is an abundance of laughter inside and outside The Thanksgiving Home. Last month’s lovely tulips have been replaced with brilliant red geraniums and striking lime green hostas. The sun brought a dynamic energy to the home, and we came alive with laughter and a renewed sense of family. We had many June birthdays to celebrate including Jackie Renwick, Ireland Gable, Frank Miller, Mary Butler, Leon Rathbun, Dee Bouck and Donna Runcorn.

    Rains, rain go away come back another day. That was on everyone’s mind at the home last month. The only benefit was that our pear, magnolias, almencheir, viburnum, crab apples and lilacs are beautiful. Thanks to the Clark greenhouse crew we have enjoyed beautiful spring daffodils and tulips as well.

Dot Gardner, Pat DeBaun, Jeanette Hanson, Dottie Bly, Wally Pickhardt, and Art and Natalie Laidlaw have been enjoying the local spring scenery thanks to country rides provided by Personal Care Assistant, Melissa Bard.

  • Home Notes: A busy winter season at the Home

    Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to take down the trees and decorations.  The Home always has beautiful trees, and it’s not quite the same taking the Christmas tree down as it is putting it up and decorating it.
