Path to Well-Being
This month lets focus on our intellectual
well-being. You are never too old to
learn something new or expand on old
passions. We have a great program with
Watermark University. It is another way
we can bring more activities to you, on
virtually any subject! Staff, residents,
family members, friends and outside
communities can teach and join in. We
have the International Wildlife Museum
come every third Thursday of the month
to talk about the desert life that
surrounds us. We have staff teaching us
about social media, Star Wars and other
passions. If you have a passion or a
curiosity about something please see
one of the Community Life girls and they
can make a class happen! Learning is
Thursday, May 26th - Family BBQ
Monday, May 30th - Memorial Day
Sunday, May 29th- Lunch Out with The
Inn to the Foothills Mall Food Court
We went out into the wild west to the Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch by
Picacho Peak! This extraordinary outing was so much fun. We started the
day with a ride around the ranch in a monster truck! While aboard we
learned all about the ranch and the animals living there. Later we enjoyed
our lunch and then feed the animals theirs! There were donkeys, deer,
goats, bunnies, ducks, parakeets, lorikeets and of course ostriches! So many
animals, so little time! We definitely got our work out for the day!
Thankfully we had lots of help and the weather was great! Thank you to all
that came out to this all day trip! We will have to go back soon to see all the
new animals that are coming to join the ranch! It was a great day spent with
great friends!
