As happens, life will soon take me away from this blog for about a week. I'll miss you but it'll be fun to update you with all the good news and happenings when I return.
Right now some of our residents are out of the house for an important birthday party; the 75th birthday of Social Security, held at the West Hartford Senior Center. They are having a buffet lunch and a BIG birthday cake. I'm told they are expecting over 100 people to attend! Fun!!!! For those who chose to stay home, several of our residents are getting together in our lounge for a game of scrabble.
Speaking of Birthdays, join us tomorrow for our in-house monthly Canterbury birthday party that begins at 1:30 p.m. in our recreation room. Dave Eberly, a wonderful piano player, will join us. Both residents who go to Waldbaums via the van in the morning, and those who choose not to, will all be ready to come together downstairs to relax, eat, drink, sing and celebrate with each other. Our Activities Director Sister Judy is busy making all the arrangements and shopping today. If your birthday is in August (and your religion permits) your name is on the cake!
Veronika, our in house hair stylist/ barber, still has a few openings for today and Thursday.
Dinner in the dining room follows at 5:30 p.m., so I hope everyone saves some room for Baked Stuffed Shrimp with Rice Pilaf. Yum!
Update: Our Van driver Brian Soucy says channel 30's Tom Monihan was at the Senior Center event, so watch for us on the local news tonight! If you miss us on the news, you can always check us out at thecanterburyretirement.com
Good bye for now, and good seeing you!
