This week was full of fun as we celebrated Carnival Week at the Heritage of Elmwood! We began the festivities on Monday with a popcorn and pop party. On Tuesday, the residents enjoyed photo booth day. We munched on home-made ice cream, snow cones, and cotton candy on Wednesday and Thursday. The Carnival festivities concluded with drop buttons in the fish tank on Friday.
Residents were treated to take-out from Kerns Bar and Grill on Tuesday to accompany their afternoon bingo game. Pastor Weaver presided over a Methodist service on Wednesday, and Father Prince held Catholic Mass on Friday. Barb Cepek and Gerri Brunner were a great help with the Rosary and Mass.
We had a great celebration for five birthdays this month! We all enjoyed entertainment by Rich Schroeder at the party, and wish a big “happy birthday!” to Carol Amdahl, Harold Kannel, Richard Schaffner, Grace Solum and Mary Jo Rathke.
