The Activity Department themed event held during the month of June was the “Wizard of Oz Party.” The Activity Department, volunteers, and other staff dressed in costumes which were in theme with this classic film. Karaoke singers Don Mockabee and Tony Baxton provided our residents with lively entertainment for this event.
Throughout the month of June our residents worked on various arts & crafts projects which were to be used during the party to create the “Emerald City” atmosphere. In one such project, the residents expressed themselves artistically by painting paper plates which were later used to become flowers decorating the walls of our Dining Room.
Other crafts included flower centerpieces made to go on each table in the Dining Room, and floral hair pins made out of layered scrapbook paper cut in a variety of shapes. The pins were worn by our residents during the event.
During the party, refreshments were served and our residents enjoyed dancing and taking pictures with the staff and volunteers. Volunteers included the Recreation Director’s two children (one the Cowardly Lion, the other a Flying Monkey) and Sandy Faver (our Wicked Witch) who came with her pet therapy dog Oliver (our little Toto).
The Activity Department would like to thank all staff and volunteers who assisted with this event and who dressed in costume to make this party one of our most exciting yet!
