Delicious Desserts and Ornament Painting

In Baking Group, we made a scrumptious white cake and chocolate chip cookies that everyone enjoyed during dinner that night. We would like to thank Marilyn Posser for all the rhubarb.  The residents loved cutting it up and can’t wait to make some good desserts with it.

We played Bingo on Tuesday and Saturday, with a blackout game played on Saturday. Residents also enjoyed playing Shaker Dice, and our top winner was Diane Gibson! Shuffleboard was played during the week, and Diane was also our top winner for that game.

On Friday, residents were busy getting creative while painting outdoor ornaments. Later that day they had fun playing a game of Flippo.

We went on a scenic bus ride up around El Paso. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for a bus ride!
