Spa Day
We Play Cards
We love to play cards here in

we celebrate the
holidays by helping those
in need. Through out the

1000 people over the last
few months, food
supplies are almost
completely depleted at
the site. Please see a
Morning Pointe associate

Thank you for helping to
make a difference this
holiday season.
