Today we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!

Today we celebrated the 90′s! We started the morning comparing the cost of living in 1991 to the cost of living now. We also talked about some of the hits of the 90′s.

At our Back to the 90′s party we featured some of the top foods of the 90′s including pizza rolls, cosmic brownies, Jell-O pudding pops, TAB soda, and Kool- Aide Bursts.

During the party we listened to some of the top hits of the 90′s including New Kids on the Block! We also played M.A.S.H. and had our fortunes told with our paper fortune tellers.

Later in the day the ladies enjoyed Talk to the Hand Manicures. Tonight we will be having a Murder She Wrote Mystery Theater.

We were thrilled to celebrate the completion of the renovations to our family room. Brad, Ketha and members of the elder council hosted the grand opening and punch social on Monday.

Our family room offers a private place for families to visit, share a meal, or have a party. Our family room is located near the front lobby with sliding glass doors leading to the patio and offers a view of our beautiful North Courtyard.
