From the Desk of Marilyn Gray, Executive Director
hanksgiving Traditions
Thanksgiving is a warm, beautiful holiday
strongly rooted in tradition. It is such a precious time because it
centers on family and friends gathering around the dinner table to
make sweet new memories. It’s a time to reunite, catch up with
loved ones and express gratitude for blessings received. Although
we enjoy the tender turkey, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pies,
Thanksgiving is so much more than the meal. It is truly a time
to give thanks and share in the simple joys of love and laughter.
Family traditions are very important to the WindsorMeade family.
As the years continue to pass, new family members will move to
this special place we call HOME. As we plan our own Community
celebrations, let us be sure to reach out and invite others to join us
in making a special WindsorMeade Thanksgiving memory.
Happy Thanksgiving to All!

University
Holly Hunt, Lifestyles Coordinator
Navigate, WindsorMeade’s Memory Support group (led by Lifestyle
Coordinator, Holly Hunt) joined
the Caregiver’s Support Group, (led
by WindsorMeade Chaplain,
Krista Manuel) on a trip to
Pumpkinville, in Norge. This
small family farm is a seasonal
treasure full of pumpkins, arts and
crafts and fall décor. Residents
were able to soak up some much
needed sunshine, pick their own pumpkin, and enjoy the festive autumn atmosphere.
Before our departure, I realized that one of the residents had not selected a pumpkin.
I offered to take the resident through the pumpkin patch. I showed him a variegated
pumpkin and he shook his head no. Then I showed him a beautiful white pumpkin. He
shook his head no again and muttered, “Traditional.” I asked him if he wanted a small,
medium or large pumpkin. He quickly said that he wanted a small pumpkin so I helped
him find the perfect traditional orange pumpkin. When I handed him the pumpkin, he
grinned from ear to ear. Needless to say, he was happy with his pumpkin and I was
delighted to see his reaction. This outing had a great impact on all who attended!
Photography: Memory
and Majesty
Thursday, November 19 | 2:00 pm | Ballroom
A painter stands before a blank canvas. A photographer stands before a
seemingly obvious reality. How does a
photographer transform that “reality”
into magic? WindsorMeade resident,
Bill Smith returns to examine the power of photography.
