We would like to say “THANK YOU” to all of our wonderful residents and their families for making our Forever Garden a big success. On Mother’s Day, residents and their families helped to plant the Forever Garden with beautiful flowers that they donated. The Forever Garden is in honor of all the residents passed and present here at the Terrace.
A “BIG THANK YOU ” to Girl Scout Troop 60562 for honoring our Veterans with a Float in the Memorial Day Parade and also to the Waterloo VFW for providing a chicken BBQ lunch for our Veterans.
Waterloo, NY is the Official Birthplace of Memorial Day. Memorial Day is officially a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service during wartime. For many Americans, however, Memorial Day weekend marks an unofficial beginning to the joys of summer. That is not so in Seneca County, NY community of Waterloo, which has been officially recognized as the birthplace of Memorial Day. On May 30th each year, regardless of which day of the week that date occurs, Waterloo residents gather for a parade and solemn cemetery event.
Please join us for our Mother’s Day Social & Garden Celebration! This will be our inaugural planting of our Forever Garden.
We encourage families and friends to bring a perennial for planting in honor or memory of your loved one.
WOW! what a great time we had with our winter Olympics. The residents enjoyed playing different games each day- they built a mountain, had a snowball toss through the Olympics rings, hit the snowman, knocked down the mountain and a snowball toss into a target. We had over 25 residents participate in the games. On Friday, there was a medal ceremony and everyone received a certificate. The three top winners also received medals. At the closing of our games the residents enjoyed Olympic torch cupcakes and hot coca with marshmallows or whip cream.
Another fabulous Strawberry Social and Car Show at SLT! Thanks to all who came out. It was a beautiful day. We also had some special guests too… another post coming soon.
We had a wonderful re-enactment for our own Sonia Davis (Personal Care Aide) who just became a US Citizen!!! We are all very proud of Sonia!
A special thank you to Don N. who helped coordinate the re-enactment with several dignitaries including: Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, representative from Sen. Tom Reed’s office, a written declaration from Sen. Pamela Helming’s office, and Cindy Lorenzetti Town of Fayette Supervisor. Thank you to all who made this a very special day for Sonia and her SLT family.
The residents enjoyeda SUPER evening of watching the Superbowl, the New England Patriots vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.They snacked on cheese balls, popcorn, cheese, crackers and pepperoni and for drinks they had sparkling cranberry juice or sparkling apple juice. What a great game it was and to see the Eagles win their first Superbowl.
