Residents enjoyed gathering together on Friday afternoon before Christmas for a Holiday Happy Hour. We shared memories of the past, singing carols, sharing in refreshments and of course the reading of Twas the Night Before Christmas. We all joined in trying to remember all the lines of a favorite Christmas Story. We did a great job!
Orchard Park celebrated International Pickle Week and I’m in a pickle day with an afternoon social. The residents enjoyed tasting the six kinds of pickles. The dill, zesty bread and butter and garlic provided much laughter with the huge puckered faces of OP residents. The sweet pickle was determined to be the best tasting of the six kinds of pickles. We played a game of “in a pickle” presenting cases as each resident shared how they would respond in the peculiar situation. The game provided much fun, discussion questions and much uncontrollable laughter.
During this past Christmas season we were fortune enough to enjoy a wonderful performance by the Colonel Crawford High School Show choir. We appreciate the great music and visit. We look forward to next year. Thank you for coming to our home.
The “Players” from Bucyrus High School visited during the holiday season to perform and sing Christmas carols. The residents of Orchard Park enjoyed the fantastic performance and singing. Thank you so much for visiting our home. We look forward to a visit again next year.
Many children gathered at Orchard Park on Good Friday, March 30th for our annual Easter egg hunt. The children had fun coloring, doing crafts, eating cookies and of course hunting for the Easter eggs. Many residents enjoyed watching the children from their windows and some braved the elements of the chilly weather and joined the children in the courtyard as they searched for the eggs. Residents had fun stuffing candy in the eggs and decorating cookies for the special occasion. Thanks to Southern Care Hospice for providing a basket of goodies for our raffle as well as some candy for our eggs. Thanks also to staff members of Southern Care for helping out with set-up and clean-up during this busy and fun event. Thanks to all of OP staff members for helping to make this another fun and successful event.
