Last week we enjoyed decorating our Christmas tree and making pine swags to hang on our doors. Shirley Bragg (piano) and Tony Shull (fiddle) played Christmas carols as more than 25 residents sang along.
Ranging in age from late sixties all the way up to 93, The High Steppers dancers always inspire us with their charm and energy. We enjoyed this show which featured Frank Sinatra and The Andrews Sisters’ music, among other old favorites.
Thursday local musician Steve Burkholder brought a mix of folk and country music to the dining room. He sang old favorites from Johnny Cash to Neil Young and had the crowd singing along to standards like “Oh, Suzannah” and “O Beautiful For Spacious Skies.” Thank you, Steve, for bringing joy to a snowy April afternoon!
A symbol commonly found in the Middle East and North Africa, the hamsa, an open hand design is believed to provide protection. Thursday we created our own colorful hamsas with art therapist Kris Lorentzsen using oil pastels and watercolors.
