A Visit from George & Abe
President George Washington & Abe Lincoln
On Presidents Day the residents of Elk
Meadows were honored to be visited by none
other than some famous presidents, George
Washington and Abraham Lincoln. This was a
very special day for us and one we will remember
for a long time!
February Highlights
Groundhog Day, Chocolate Lover’s Day,
Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, Fairy Tale Day,
Snack Food Day, & Leap Year Day were all
special days that were celebrated during the
month of February.
Valentine Decorations for our building
were made and hung such as Valentine banners,
window decorations, & door decorations. We also
made hair bows, shabby book stacks, tied a quilt,
mended clothes and bibs, baked cookies, made
flour stress balls, & designed color chip artwork.
Monday is Senior Citizens, Tuesday
Porter the Therapy Dog visits in the morning and
then in the afternoon Jennie Phillips entertains us
with her beautiful singing and guitar, Wednesday
is out to Lunch Bunch, Friday is Bingo which is
called by Ed Sorenson and then Charlie
entertains us on the Piano. We have a lot of
opportunities to go out and a lot of fun things
happening in our building. Thanks to everyone
who makes this happen!

March 2012
"St. Patrick's Day is here, you see.
We'll pick some shamrocks, one, two, three.
We'll count the leaves and look them over,
And maybe find a four-leafed clover.
I'll sew green buttons on my vest,
Green for St. Patrick is the best.
I'll wear a green hat, very high,
And dance a jig--at least I'll try!"
